IRVING – A hospital in northern Chautauqua County has announced that it will be closing its doors due to a lack of revenue.
YNN News is reporting that the board of directors of Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving voted Tuesday to close the facility at the end of January. The Health Care Center is part of the Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York. According to the news report, the center is expected to lose $7 million this year. A total of 460 employees will lose their job.
In an effort to possibly reverse the closure, County Legislator George Borrello (R-Silver Creek) is asking both Senator Cathy Young and Assemblyman Andy Goodell to offer support in finding a solution to the financial crisis.
