BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the New York State Public Health and Health Planning Council (PHHPC) approved a Certificate of Need (CON) application which allows the affiliation between Maimonides Medical Center and New York Community Hospital (NYCH) to continue to move forward. Maimonides and NYCH expect to satisfy the sole contingency the Council put forward for approval and to formally conclude the transaction this summer, at which time NYCH will become a subsidiary of Maimonides.

This approval marks an important milestone following the signing in December 2020 of an affiliation agreement between the two organizations. The affiliation draws on the historic strength of both hospitals, facilitating further collaboration among clinicians and more convenient patient access to a broader array of medical and surgical specialty services at NYCH.

Through their existing clinical collaboration agreement, Maimonides and NYCH have already demonstrated ways in which the relationship benefits patients.  Maimonides physicians from over ten specialties have begun to provide services at NYCH. The two organizations are also in the process of jointly developing an infusion suite at NYCH to serve cancer patients.   The clinical affiliation has enabled Maimonides to work with NYCH to further enhance medical services and programs it provides to its patients, including cancer care, cardiovascular care, surgical services, and advanced imaging.
