DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk has reviewed more than two dozen potential sites in Chautauqua County to build a new facility.
In the next 30 days, a sub-committee of the hospital’s Board of Directors wants to narrow the list down to just two or three locations.
Selection criteria for the new facility includes infrastructure, access, convenience and regulatory.
Earlier in the year, it was announced that Brooks Memorial Hospital, TLC Health Network and Kaleida Health planned to associate with each other. Brooks Hospital seeks to build a new facility with a joint $57 million grant secured through New York’s Essential Healthcare Provider Support Program. The money was secured earlier this year.
The goal is to make it so an integrated delivery system is formed, with the Dunkirk campus leading traditional hospital services. The Irving facility would become “more of an ambulatory location,” hospital representatives say.
TLC Health wants to do renovations focusing on ambulatory surgery, imaging and specialty services.
Brooks is still looking for donors wishing to give money or land for the project. They can be reached at (716) 366-1111.
