Syracuse's Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) has purchased land for its future replacement hospital and clinic.
Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) has purchased land for its future replacement hospital and clinic.
The approximately 28-acre site, to the northwest of the Highways 50 and 2 intersections, south of the John Deere dealer, offers high visibility for the hospital, easier access from outlying areas, and provides room to grow in the future.
CMH’s current site is approximately four acres. A residential neighborhood has grown around the site, leaving no land for facility expansion or additional parking.
“This is an important and fundamental step forward to ensure this project becomes a reality for our residents,” said Fred Bredehoeft, President of the CMH District Board of Directors. “We believe this location will provide greater accessibility to people throughout the region, and will allow the hospital the ability to expand over time.”
According to Michael Harvey, CMH President & CEO, grading on the site could begin as early as next month to prepare the land for construction next spring.
