NewYork-Presbyterian Seeks Takeover of Lawrence Hospital Center

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City has filed a certificate of need with the state to completely absorb Lawrence Hospital Center in Bronxville, N.Y., according to a Journal News report.

Lawrence Hospital Center, a 291-bed facility, is already an affiliate within the NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System. If New York approves the CON, NewYork-Presbyterian would gain full control of the Lawrence Hospital Center and run the hospital's day-to-day operations, according to the report.

A spokeswoman for NewYork-Presbyterian told The Journal News that "a closer alignment will further benefit the community."

NewYork-Presbyterian conducted a similar merger when it added New York Downtown Hospital in Manhattan as its sixth hospital campus this past summer.

Lawrence Hospital Center was one of four hospitals that disestablished Stellaris Health Network last year.
