SLCH Pauses Application for Closure of the Cornwall Emergency Department
St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital has always taken the voices of our local leadership and community seriously and in particular Senator Larkin, whose leadership we have relied upon for many years. We will be taking a pause in our application for closure and will continue to operate the emergency department and associated services until questions about the Cornwall Campus Emergency Department transition and access to care are addressed with our local leaders and elected officials, including Congressman Maloney, Senator Larkin and Assemblyman Skoufis.
St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital remains dedicated to maintaining our community's access to the highest quality health care in the most appropriate patient setting. Good communication is an important part of that process. We thank our community for their input and are confident that together, we will move forward successfully.
