Brooks-TLC puts Lakeshore site up for sale
IRVING — What’s the future for a former health care facility in northern Chautauqua County? No one is quite sure, but the Brooks-TLC Hospital System has put the campus up for sale.
On Monday, the board of directors of Brooks-TLC announced it has engaged Pyramid Brokerage Co. of Buffalo, Inc. to act as broker for the sale of the former TLC campus and Lakeshore Hospital at 845 Main Road. Last December, the same board announced plans to close the facility, which eliminated some 200 jobs. The facility’s final day of operation was Feb. 2.
“Pyramid was selected following a search for commercial real estate brokers with experience in the sale or lease of health care facilities, not only with a significant local presence, but also with a national reach,” said Chris Lanski, Brooks-TLC board president. “Hospital leadership will work with Pyramid to help identify the best potential buyer and reuse of the facility.”
The former hospital, medical offices, and skilled nursing facility located on Routes 5 and 20 comprises 172,381 square feet and sits on a 30.8 -acre site.
“Pyramid has an extensive background brokering the sale of facilities in the health care, hospitality, retail and investment sectors,” shared Richard Schechter who, along with and David Seider and John Ticco III, comprise the Pyramid team assigned to this project. “The location of the property on Routes 5 and 20 with proximity to the New York State Thruway I-90 Silver Creek exit offers a variety of reuse opportunities to add value to the Irving community.
In recent months, members of the Hanover Town Board have been questioning what the future of the site will be since there has been no activity on the grounds for nine months. Brooks-TLC closed the campus after reporting nearly $20 million in fiscal losses in 2019.
