FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 13, 2022
Statement from Mayor Noble on the new hospital:
Tomorrow, December 14, 2022, starting at 6:00am, the Kingston hospital on Broadway will close and HealthAlliance will begin to move patients to the new hospital located at 105 Mary’s Avenue.
The new HealthAlliance hospital is a state-of-the-art, two-story, 79,000 sq ft. facility that was funded with $88.8 million from the New York State Capital Restructuring Financing Program. With this over $100 million investment into accessible healthcare right here in heart of our city, this hospital relocation fits with our overall vision for improving the daily health and wellness of all our residents in the City of Kingston. We are a growing community, and with this hospital expansion meets the needs of our residents.
My role as Mayor is to ensure that our residents have the services they need to live a vibrant, healthy life and that is not possible without a well-funded, well-staffed hospital system. I am hopeful that WMC Health will be good partners in this effort.
I want to thank Governor Hochul, WMC Health, and our community for rallying behind this investment in local healthcare. I want to thank the dedicated healthcare workers who serve our residents each and every day, and who are working to make this move seamless.
I ask the public for their patience during this transition on Wednesday. You may seem ambulances moving patients from the former hospital to the new campus on Mary’s Ave. Please make way for these vehicles.
I look forward to opening this next chapter of healthcare here in Kingston.
