SENATOR SKOUFIS PARTNERS WITH MONTEFIORE ST. LUKE’S CORNWALL TO ANNOUNCE EXPANSION OF CORNWALL CAMPUS SERVICES

MSLC received $11.9 million commitment from the New York State Department of Health under the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program IIb


CORNWALL, NY: Senator James Skoufis joined Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall (MSLC) today to announce that the hospital has been awarded an $11.9 million commitment from the New York State Department of Health as part of the Statewide Healthcare Facility Transformation Program (SHCFTP) IIb.

This award will be used to further expand MSLC’s Cornwall campus with the inclusion of an Open Access Primary Care Center, Imaging Suite, Multi-specialty Physician Offices, Blood Bank and Specialized Laboratory as well as necessary renovations to further advance technologies and guest services.

In the last 18 months, MSLC’s Cornwall campus has undergone significant transformation, from what was once an inpatient hospital, to what is now a thriving outpatient center including Radiation Oncology, Rehabilitative Services, Outpatient Dialysis, Wound Care, Sleep Medicine and Pain Management.

“This is an exciting day for our community,” said Senator James Skoufis. “I am proud to see the continued growth of Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall, as they work to further expand their programs and services. The addition of Open Access Primary Care, expansion of specialty practices and overall enhancements to this campus will provide our community members with increased access to care when they it need most, right in their backyard. This is transformation at its finest.”

“We made a commitment to the community several years ago that while the hospital of yesterday may not look like that of tomorrow, we are committed to evolving to best meet the healthcare needs of the patients we are privileged to serve,” said Joan Cusack-McGuirk, MSLC President and CEO. “This funding allows us to hold true to that commitment. I would like to thank Senator Skoufis and all of our elected officials for their continued investment in the evolution of Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall.”

The SHCFTP dollars will be used specifically to create:

  • An Open Access Primary Care Center, which will treat patients in need of immediate primary or episodic care during expanded hours including walk-ins.
  • A Fully Equipped Imaging Suite, providing necessary outpatient evaluations.
  • Multi-Specialty Medical Practices, such as Thoracic surgery and Hepatobiliary surgery.
  • An Expansion of the Main Blood Bank and Laboratory, to include an expansion of existing space to allow for outpatient bloodwork.
  • Additionally, renovations will also be made across the campus to reveal a more modern aesthetic.

Senator Skoufis highlighted MSLC’s continued commitment to addressing the needs of the patients it serves.

According to Cusack-McGuirk the renovations will take approximately 18-24 months. The hospital is currently in the process of creating architectural drawings with plans to begin later this year.
