NYU Hospital Knew Generators Subpar Before Storm, Cohn Says
By Christine Harper, Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle – 2012-10-30T21:22:12Z
New York University Hospital’s board of directors knew that generators at NYU Langone Medical Center were outdated and at risk before their failure during Hurricane Sandy forced patients to evacuate, said Gary Cohn, a trustee.
The facility’s backup generators “are not state-of-the-art and not in the most state-of-the-art location,” Cohn, who is also president of New York-based Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS), said today in an interview on Bloomberg Television.
“That is all very well-known by the board of directors of NYU and in fact we are undergoing a $3 billion renovation of the entire hospital facility to completely modernize it to ensure we would have backup power forever,” he said.
