Kaleida Health Files Appeal After New York Rejects Orchard Park ASC Project

The New York Public Health and Health Planning Council rejected Buffalo, N.Y.-based Kaleida Health's certificate of need application to build an ambulatory surgery center in Orchard Park. But, Kaleida Health has rallied and filed an appeal, according to a Buffalo Business First report.

The Southtowns Ambulatory Surgery Center would be a joint venture between Kaleida Health, 22 physician partners and the University of Buffalo School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.

The project faced strong opposition from neighboring hospitals and health systems, including Buffalo-based Catholic Health. The state council voted against the project in April, effectively denying a CON.

Through the appeals process, the project will now be assigned to a state Department of Health attorney for review and eventually come before the Public Health and Health Planning Council for a final decision.
