IRVING — The former TLC-Lakeshore Medical Center, a hospital campus which has been shuttered since February 2020, is set to undergo a transformative revival.

Northeast Medical — which also goes be NE Med — calls itself a dedicated group of professionals from various fields. It is in contract to purchase the property with plans to reopen it as a 100-plus bed behavioral and mental health facility. This new center will also provide essential addiction recovery and treatment services.

“Our goal is to leverage as much of the existing infrastructure as possible, renovating the facility to meet pressing local mental health needs, including addiction treatment and support,” said Joe Bonilla, director of external relations for NE Med. “We are currently assembling our executive team and seeking to identify additional uses within the behavioral and mental health categories.”

NE Med aims to close escrow on the campus before September of this year, with plans to submit renovation proposals to the town of Hanover, as well as Chautauqua County, by November of this year.
