According to state statistics, Long Island College Hospital in 2010 delivered 4,000 babies, removed 100 appendixes and performed 2,400 CT scans.

The shakeup of Brooklyn’s healthcare system could continue Thursday with a vote to shutter Long Island College Hospital.

The 506-bed LICH, located in Cobble Hill, faces its shutdown vote just two months after Interfaith Medical Center, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Trustees of the State University of New York, which owns the hospital, are meeting late Thursday to decide its fate.
