Coney Island Hospital
will get to replace its aging
ultrasound equipment after
a $2 million cash infusion
allocated by the feds.
The public hospital in
southern Brooklyn will
also put money towards
modernizing its “digital
care” strategy after the
budget allocation by US
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis,
even though Coney Island
Hospital, which is actually
in Sheepshead Bay, has
been drawn out of her congressional
district for the
upcoming midterm elections.
“It really is a tremendous
hospital and it is the
public hospital for southern
said while visiting the
hospital on Monday. “So
I’m really happy to be able
to work with my colleagues
in a bipartisan fashion
and get the appropriations
committee to approve this
earmark of $2 million to
make sure that we can
make those necessary improvements.”
The new ultrasound
equipment promises dramatically
“We’ve gone from a flip
phone, which does its job,
to a smartphone,” said Dr.
Carlos Forcade, chairman
of the hospital’s radiology
department. “That’s the
best way I can put it.”
The hospital is currently
undergoing a transformation
expected to be
completed this fall, which
will see the construction
of a new 11-story hospital
building and the renaming
of the medical center
after the late Supreme
Court Justice Ruth Bader
Ginsburg, who grew up
in Midwood and stands as
one of southern Brooklyn’s
proudest daughters. Overall,
the campus is being
rebranded as South Brooklyn
the hospital’s role as the
primary public health facility
for the southern part
of the borough, rather than
just for Coney Island.
The upgraded ultrasound
equipment is part of
the concurrent modernization
campaign the hospital
is undertaking as it takes
on a new name and new facilities.
“We want to make sure
that our patients are getting
state of the art care
not only in the medical devices
but in how they’re interacting
with our system
and with our facility,” said
Coney Island Hospital CEO
“Because our patients here
should get exactly the same
care as they would at any
