State Approves Plan to Close Summit Park Hospital

New York State officials have approved the closure of the Summit Park Hospital and Nursing Home. According to a statement released by Rockland County Executive Ed Day, the approval of the plan means that the county owned facility will begin moving the residents of the home to new locations. Day stated, “We are committed to doing all we can to ensure that these life transitions go smoothly for all involved, and that the health and safety of our residents remain our number one priority.” The hospital is not budgeted for 2016, and so must be closed by the December 31 deadline. The sale of the hospital that was supposed to be finalized for $32 million in September was terminated by Sympaticare LLC, who claimed it was because the county did not meet the terms of their agreement and the facility, which now houses about 122 patients will begin the closing process.
