Cornwall Hospital

Survival

In Cornwall, the writing is already on the wall.

Saving Emergency Room unlikely

Ken Hall of the Times Herald Record opines on the unlikely rescue of the Cornwall Emergency room.  By comparing the Cornwall ER closing with the recent Port Jervis maternity unit's closing, Ken outlines the decision-making process that the hospital board and the Health Department follow.  There just isn't a good case for keeping the ER open with the Newburgh facility so close by.  What is needed is a business case for keeping the hospital open and viable.  Read article

St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital Overview

What is surprising is that so many of our residents are on the Board of Trustees, yet we have heard nothing about the Emergency Room cutback or any discussion of the hospital's status!  The CEO, Allan E. Atzrott is a supporter of Steve Neuhaus who is a supporter of KJ.  Although retiring soon, Mr. Atzrott is lobbying for State money to help fund the hospital.  It is said he is seeking to sell the Cornwall campus.  To whom?  Perhaps the same eventual buyer of the Cornwall Commons if Joe Amato manages to get the zoning change he seeks.  It is complicated, but there are far too many coincidences to ignore the KJ connection.
