SYRACUSE, N.Y. —The state Health Department’s Public Health and Health Planning Council today approved the Certificate of Need (CON) regarding Upstate University Hospital’s acquisition of Community General Hospital.
“The approval of the Certificate of Need today is a significant milestone and it moves us ever closer to meeting our commitment to strengthening healthcare opportunities in this region for our patients, while at the same time preserving local healthcare jobs,” said John McCabe, M.D., chief executive officer of Upstate University Hospital. “We appreciate the hard work of so many at both institutions, in the Central New York community and at the state Health Department who have helped move this project forward.”
The acquisition must now be approved by the Office of the State Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General.
