New York hospital campus to close in October

To close a $10 million deficit, Eastern Niagara Hospital is cutting 50 jobs and shutting down its campus in Newfane, N.Y., according to Buffalo Business First.

Eastern Niagara will close the Newfane campus, previously known as Newfane Inter-Community Memorial Hospital, in October. The property will then be put up for sale, according to WKBW.

Board chairman Rocco Surace said the changes will help ensure Eastern Niagara's long-term viability.

"We are committed to serving the community for many years and doing it well," he said, according to Buffalo Business First. "This sustainable service model is what is needed to ensure our hospital's viability in the community."

Eastern Niagara's campus in Lockport, N.Y., will remain open. The hospital will "consolidate and streamline" inpatient beds and nursing units in Lockport, according to Buffalo Business First.
