A hospital in Brooklyn has filed for bankruptcy protection.

The New York Times reports that Interfaith Medical Center filed for Chapter 11 reorganization late Sunday.

The hospital on Atlantic Avenue serves the nearby communities of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The filing lists the State Dormitory Authority as its single-largest creditor. Other creditors include the federal government and several malpractice plaintiffs.

The newspaper says Interfaith officials say they need $20 million from the state just to continue operating during bankruptcy reorganization. Otherwise it faces the possibility it will have to close.
