CTAAB found that community need supported approval of the proposed Warsaw , NY sleep center based on access to care.

4/1/2005 Strong Memorial Hospital

Strong Memorial Hospital proposed to renovate surgical adult intensive care units and intermediate care units.

CTAAB concluded that there is a community need for the proposed renovations, based on the following rationale:

  • The beds to be renovated are considered to be functionally obsolete.
  • The number of staffed ICU beds will remain within the hospital’s current licensed ICU capacity.

CTAAB's recommendation included a suggestion that Strong Memorial Hospital be required to provide a detailed plan on how the unit will be staffed and how the needed staff will be recruited or developed.

3/1/2005 Barry Rosenberg, MD, PC, with United Memorial Medical Center

Barry Rosenberg, MD, PC, in conjunction with Alliance Imaging, proposed to place a dedicated mobile PET scanner at United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia , NY .

CTAAB found community need supported approval of one day per week mobile PET scanning at United Memorial Medical Center based on access to care.

3/1/2005 Nicholas Noyes Memorial Hospital

Nicholas Noyes Memorial Hospital submitted a CON application for the expansion of its surgical services center and ICU.

CTAAB found that community need supported approval of the expansion/renovation of the ICU and OR service areas.

3/1/2005 Strong Memorial Hospital

Strong Memorial Hospital proposed to construct a four-story building to house the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, which will include all adult outpatient cancer care services (including radiation oncology, hematology-oncology, and chemo infusion therapy); translational, clinical trial, and cancer research programs; and medical education and administrative space.  This facility will accommodate a growing patient population and enhanced services.

CTAAB concluded that there was a community need for the proposed building, based on the following rationale:

  • The existing facilities are functionally obsolete and scattered in a manner both inefficient and burdensome to patients.
  • While the staff analysis did not indicate the projected visit volume will be achieved in the time frame projected, there is good reason to believe it will be achieved in a reasonable time.
  • The proposed space program appears to be appropriate to the identified needs and would represent a more efficient, more intensive use of space than at present.
  • The financial impact of the proposed facility does not appear to be adverse to community efforts to control cost.
  • The co-location of clinical and research spaces and integration of medical, surgical and radiation treatment modalities in one location will support high quality of care.
2/1/2005 Limit Open MRI and Upgrade / Relocate MRI at Linden Oaks

The Ide Group proposed to limit use of their open-MRI system at their Clinton Crossings location along with the upgrade and relocation of an existing MRI unit to Linden Oaks (from Clinton Crossings site).  

CTAAB found community need supported approval of the existing open MRI for up to 0.3 FTE, with the understanding that:

    The open magnet is to be used on a limited basis for two specific classes of patients: bariatric patients (large body size or weight) and patients with claustrophobia

This does not constitute a resource which can be replaced by another MRI unit; and Any replacement of such unit must be reviewed by CTAAB in the context of community need at the time of review.

1/1/2005 Second Catheterization Lab

Park Ridge Hospital proposed to place a second catheterization lab adjacent to existing catheterization lab, which is scheduled to be replaced as part of their Emergency Center Expansion Project due to steady growth in the scope and volume of cardiac services over the past several years.

CTAAB concluded that there is a community need for the proposed laboratory based on the following rationale:

  • Monroe County cardiac catheterization labs are used at a rate well above state standards, even when approved expansions are considered.
  • Park Ridge Hospital uses its present cath lab in excess of state standards.
  • The Park Ridge cardiac cath program has remained strong and has grown.
9/1/2004 Sleep Insights of Rochester

Sleep Insights of Rochester proposes to place a clinical sleep center at One Eastgate Square, Victor, NY.

CTAAB found that community need did not support a sleep disorders center for the proposed location.

CTAAB concluded that there is not a community need for the proposed sleep center, based on the following rationale:

  • There is no clearly defined community need for the proposed capacity which is consistent with what was determined before;
  • Current centers have access to neurologic sleep services; and
  • Current providers are not fully utilizing dedicated sleep center bed for neurologic sleep disorders.

CTAAB's original recommendation for disapproval remains.
