Residents Say “Not So Fast” to $43 million Hospital Expansion

Tomorrow, the Borough will consider issuing $43 million in revenue bonds to finance an expansion to Central Peninsula Hospital. But Dan Green is petitioning the Borough to delay their decision…

 

Green: “There’s been so little information provided to the public on what’s going on.”

 

The expansion would add a new space for offices, spinal care, and more. But the design has been evolving…

 

Green: “Two or three months ago, it was noted in the certificate of need application as 72,000 square feet and a memorandum that’s attached to this resolution now has it at 89,000 square feet, increasing in cost from $38 million to $43 million.”

 

Green said he’s not opposing the expansion, but rather the way the process has been handled…

 

Green: “My entire objective is to make the public aware that the Borough Assembly will be voting this Tuesday on a resolution to sell $43 million in revenue bonds to expand the Central Peninsula Hospital. I find it odd and unacceptable that this is being done with very little public notice and most importantly in a way that does not require a vote by the public.”

 

To get involved, visit the Borough Assembly website and email your representative or call Dan Green on 398-9199 to sign his petition.
