HealthAlliance encouraged about repurposing of Kingston Hospital


Kingston Hospital

KINGSTON – As the HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley works through the process of restructuring, officials are encouraged by the amount of interest from potential buyers of the Kingston Hospital.

That facility will be closed with all HealthAlliance services being performed at Benedictine Hospital, which will be renamed HealthAlliance Mary’s Avenue Campus.

Hospital President David Lundquist said there is interest in Kingston Hospital, but it is early in the process.

“We haven’t had any detailed discussions because we want to finalize our plan first so that we know that when that possibility could occur,” Lundquist said. “As soon as we finalize our plan, we will be in discussions with interested parties and the good news is that there has been more than one and these are entities that are interested in putting in services that are much needed by the community.”

Among the interested parties is a local medical group that has expressed the desire to develop a medical college there.
