Two county hospitals get funds

Two Oneida County hospitals are sharing more than $14 million in state grants, it was announced Friday. Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare, with major facilities in Utica and New Hartford, and St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Utica, are both getting $7.1 million through the state’s Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law, also known as Heal-NY. Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, in Otsego County, is receiving $13.7 million.

Rome Memorial Hospital was not on the list of recipients. Statewide, the $301.1 million in HEAL NY grants will help 40 hospitals and nursing homes across the state improve primary and community-based care, eliminate excess bed capacity, and reduce reliance on inpatient care in hospitals and nursing homes, according to the state Health Department.

The awards and are part of nearly $3 billion in funding that has been invested in health care reform through 20 separate HEAL NY phases over the last seven years.
