Supporters are hailing a decision that will give a struggling Brooklyn hospital a short reprieve.
Interfaith Hospital's closure plan was scheduled to be put into place Monday, but has now been pushed back until September 11.
It comes after after supporters argued in federal bankruptcy court that the state approved the closure plan without proper oversight.
Supporters are pushing to keep it open, saying neighboring communities will suffer greatly.
"It's time for the state government and the city government to deal with that plan. It's time for the state Department of Health to come to the table with the people who do the work with the community members and actually try and resolve the outstanding issues," said Public Advocate and Democratic mayoral candidate De Blasio said.
"Please, let's keep our hospital open," another supporter said. "Let's look at a restructuring plan that's going to be amenable to the community and to everybody else, so we can continue to have Interfaith Hospital in our community."
Operators have said the Bedford-Stuyvesant facility does not have the finances to continue.
