BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — A public presentation of proposals regarding the takeover of Long Island College Hospital will be hosted Tuesday at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights.

The community forum, organized by six local groups from neighborhoods surrounding the hospital, will hear from bidders who have accepted an invitation to present details of their plans to the public, according to the Cobble Hill Association.

Last week, nine proposals from teams bidding to take over LICH were made public.

Four would operate a hospital at the Cobble Hill property, while some others proposed freestanding emergency rooms, urgent care facilities and primary and specialty services.

According to a settlement that was reached in regards to the hospital’s future last month, committees made up of state officials, community and union representatives will decide on one proposal during a seven-day selection process, which began last week.

Teams who have submitted proposals include Brooklyn Health Partners, Fortis Property Group, partnering with NYU Langone Medical Center and Lutheran HealthCare, the Peebles Corporation, partnering with Maimonides Medical Center, North Shore-LIJ and ProHEALTH, Prime Healthcare Foundation, the Brooklyn Hospital Center, Lana Acquisitions, Trindade Value Partners, the Chetrit Group and the Chinese Community Accountable Care Organization.

The LICH community forum will be hosted March 25 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. Francis College, Founder’s Hall Auditorium, located at 180 Remsen St.
