NYC hospital closed after superstorm set to reopen

 

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City hospital that had to evacuate hundreds of patients during Superstorm Sandy after it lost power is set to reopen.

Officials at NYU Langone Medical Center say nearly all services will return to the hospital today.

Sen. Charles Schumer will join hospital officials for the reopening.

Schumer helped secure nearly $150 million in federal aid for the damaged facility.

The Manhattan medical center evacuated 300 patients after it lost generator power because of the storm.

Some of its outpatient facilities have been operating since early November.
