New York hospital system seeking state OK to close Irving campus

Brooks-TLC Hospital System, which announced its intent last month to close its Lakeshore Health Center Campus in Irving, N.Y., is seeking state approval to close it at a meeting Jan. 16, according to The Observer Today.

The decision to close the campus is a result of the financial challenges of being a rural healthcare provider, the system said. In 2019, the Irving campus reported a $7.1 million deficit.

Closing the Irving campus will affect all services, including outpatient and support, a 20-bed inpatient behavioral health hospital and 20-bed addictions facility. 

New York's Behavioral Health Services Advisory Council is reviewing the closure request.
