Montefiore to close 121-bed hospital in New York

Montefiore Health System in New York City plans to close its 121-bed Mount Vernon (N.Y.) Hospital late next year, according to the Rockland/Westchester Journal News

The health system plans to replace the hospital with a $41 million emergency and ambulatory facility. The new facility will not offer inpatient care.

The system hasn't said how the closure will affect current hospital employees. 

"Our goal is to bring the most forward-thinking, modern medicine to Mount Vernon and the surrounding region and to provide the highest quality care when and where people in this community need it most," Montefiore Health System spokesperson Lynn Richmond told the publication. "Our new site puts patients first, reflects best practices in health care and ensures Mount Vernon residents have high-quality care for years to come."
