OBSERVER Staff Report
The Brooks-TLC Hospital System is planning on building a new hospital at the former Cornell Cooperative Extension site in Fredonia. Since the announcement in January, there have been a number of questions from the community regarding the proposal.
The Brooks-TLC Hospital system is responding to a number of questions, including:
¯ Why do we need a new hospital?
¯ Why can’t the current hospital be updated?
¯ How was the new site selected?
¯ What other sites in Dunkirk were considered?
¯ What will the hospital look like?
¯ How much will the project cost and where are the funds coming from?
¯ Why is the proposed hospital smaller than the current facility?
¯ How will a new hospital help recruit physicians to the area?
¯ What is the timeline for construction?
≤ What about Dunkirk residents who can’t easily get to Fredonia?
¯ What will happen to the current hospital structure?
Brooks-TLC Hospital System’s entire response to all these questions and more is on Page A5 in today’s paper.
