Sale of Summit Park Hospital has Rockland Officials Disagreeing

Rockland County Executive Ed Day is standing by his claim that the buyer for the Summit Park Hospital is at fault for the termination of the sale. Sympaticare LLC, the company set to purchase the county-owned facility by September 30, stated they believe the county failed to meet agreements in the contract and blamed official’s alleged inability to negotiate on terms. County officials announced the cancellation of the $32 million sale last week, and Day stated to WRCR that the hospital will close by December 31, and would result in 288 employees losing their jobs, otherwise it would cost Rockland a million dollars a month to remain open. Shalom Braunstein, the owner of Sympaticare stated to News 12 that the company reached out to the county, but received no response and was forced to terminate the sale when they were denied an extension.
