New York health system to close 2 outpatient practices

Orange County, N.Y.-based Garnet Health is scaling back medical services, according to an Aug. 11 report from News 12 Westchester.

Several services are affected, including the hospital in Wallkill, which will no longer have an operating room nurse on staff overnight, and routine OB/GYN rheumatology and pediatric care will no longer be offered at their locations in Middletown, Monticello, and Harris.

OB/GYN patients in or past their second trimester are not immediately impacted and will still receive delivery and postpartum care.

Garnet said in a letter to staff that the changes are because of "unavoidable influences" affecting the healthcare system.
