IRVING, N.Y. (WIVB) - All options are on the operating table as the Board of Directors of Lake Shore Health Care Center meet Tuesday night.
The hospital in Chautauqua County has been slated to close, but a buyer has appeared who may save 460 people from losing their jobs. Before the meeting, fire trucks and ambulances surrounded the facility with lights flashing, a visual protest to the proposed closure.
Developer Tony Borrello is offering to purchase Lake Shore Health Care Center for $15 million and keep it open.
"That's why I'm here tonight, to find out what they want to do," Borrello said. "If they want to leave it as a community hospital so that we can run it, it'll cost the board nothing, it'll cost the community nothing. We're putting up all the money and we're going to give them a hospital in return."
Borrello has already submitted a $50,000 good-faith deposit in hopes of reaching some sort of a deal.
