What's going on with Geneva General? They announce they are for sale but nothing for months. Are they going under?

The cardiology group associated with FLMA has announced they are moving - future appointments in Canandaigua or Clifton Springs (RGH-owned hospitals). The reason given was to make sure the revenue from expensive cardio tests stay within the RGH boundary. So I guess I need to look for a new cardiologist.

"You go to Strong (URMC) for cancer, Rochester General (RGH) for heart".

I wouldn't expect GGH to reclaim a lot of cardiology patients, although I can't see why RGH can't see patients in Geneva and still schedule the tests on their home turf; not every visit necessarily needs a test afterwards (hopefully).

(From their website)
FLH will work with URMC to Strengthen Clinical Care & Hospital Operations Geneva, New York (NY), Finger Lakes Health
https://www.flhealth.org/patients-visito...ital-operations


Families in the Finger Lakes region can expect to see more high quality services at Geneva General Hospital and Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, leaders of Finger Lakes Health said today in announcing an agreement with the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) to provide clinical operations support for both hospitals.

A management services agreement between the two institutions was just approved by the New York State Department of Health. It builds on a longstanding collaborative relationship through which many URMC physicians already provide care to Finger Lakes Health patients in Geneva and Penn Yan.

Under the agreement, URMC will work with the leadership of Finger Lakes Health to develop a broader array of clinical care and preventive health services, while providing guidance and technical support to help strengthen their hospital operations and financial performance.

Geneva General and Soldiers & Sailors will remain independent hospitals governed by a community board of directors. Dr. Jose Acevedo, President and CEO of Finger Lakes Health, will continue overseeing administrative operations and clinical services. Without changing the status of employees, the 24-month agreement provides a framework for the two institutions to work together to improve access and quality of care for patients served by Finger Lakes Health.

I think a 2-year countdown for GGH executives is pretty generous.

Will that improve operations at the hospital?

Probably not, except that the reduced operating costs may make it easier to keep open.
