Coney Island Hospital gets $2 million for new ultrasound equipment


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 Brooklyn,” Malliotakis 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.”
