The doors of Peninsula Hospital will be kept open, according to hospital officials.

“We’re definitely reaching payroll,” said Liz Sulik, the hospital’s director of external affairs.

The embattled Far Rockaway facility was previously in danger of not meeting payroll after December 26 without a cash infusion.

But now, the hospital is “moving forward at a steady pace.”

“We’re meeting the challenges as they arise, and we’re looking forward to a very bright future,” Sulik said.

Peninsula and its creditors will return to bankruptcy court on Thursday, December 22.

Sulik declined to comment on court proceedings, although published reports say the court will discuss a $3 million loan to the hospital from Revival Home Health Care, which took over hospital operations in September.
