Cayuga, Schuyler hospitals cement consolidation of services


In a consolidation intended to benefit both Schuyler Hospital and Cayuga Medical Center, the two hospitals announced Wednesday that they are now operating under the new corporate umbrella of Cayuga Health System, while still retaining their individual entities and buildings.
The signing of documents required to form the new corporate entity of Cayuga Health System has been going on since Sept. 30 but the official rollout came Wednesday, said John Rudd, president and CEO of Cayuga Medical Center and Cayuga Health System.
Rudd said there are no job cuts as a result of the consolidation and he would not comment on what new services and programs would be shared between the two hospitals in the future. He said there are ideas on the horizon but it is too early to elaborate.
The consolidation makes official a sharing of services that has been going on since 2011, Rudd said.
