Lake Shore (NY) hospital plans to stay open under its own management

The Buffalo News, August 28, 2014

Following 10 months of uncertainty over its fate, embattled Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving no longer plans to close and is no longer seeking a buyer, a hospital spokesman told The Buffalo News this morning. The hospital has withdrawn the closure plan it filed last October with the state Labor Department, said Scott Butler, a spokesman for TLC Health Network, which operates the hospital and related facilities. The hospital – which is licensed for 35 in-patient beds and 120 long-term beds – also received permission from the state Health Department to remain open under its own management, after previously operating as part of a Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York that included Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk.
