October 17, 2020 - Still waiting for justice...

A 2014 promise of healthcare funding, 5-years and 10 monthh after first hearing "new hospital," area has zero improvements to Utica health care. SEQRA laws ignored and a downtown neigborhood Largely Erased (Video, via Facebook).


October 6, 2020 - Nine months, twelve days, waiting for justice...


September 15, 2020 - Thirteen days since oral arguements "round two" and 320 since "round one", as we recall Three Hospital Comparables in MVHS's fraudently SEQR Review...

None were comparable! Seems Utica will be the only city building their only hospital in a Evacuation Zone... what a very sad distinction!


September 8, 2020 - At least five places to build a Parking garage...

Utica should pick historic Preservation, significant Erie Canal Heritage to protect.


September 1, 2020 - In today's mail a #NoospitalDowntown member hears again from the government...

Which, when taken with past statements years ago, appears very strange...

Tomorrow, the first lawsuit that challenged MVHS's SEQR Review is to be heard in Oneida County Supreme Court. This Legal saga as been tracked.


August 22, 2020 - "They missed the memo..."

And everyone in Utica and Oneida County missed the study! Where is their study of Utica's hospital assets and system that determined a new hospital was necessary? Troubling, as Nobody Has Ever Seen One!


August 13, 2020 - The Utica-based judge takes a step in the "No Hospital Downtown case...

Will Judge Clark also be touring the St. Luke's Campus within Utica's current Oneida County Medical District?


July 24, 2020 - Finally, Oneida County Supreme Court has assigned a judge to our lawsuit, Read More... Yet it's criminal the Downtown Destruction they've wrought.


June 24, 2020 - Email update from attorney Tom West, see the #NoHospitalDowntown Legal page. And we have recently updated our "990" page with three 2018 IRS 990's of MVHS and Utica two Hospitals... FSLH and SEMC

April 17, 2020 - MVHS and City of Utica go back on their word, do not allow an Albany ruling on the merits, no they continued shopping for a judge...

Get to know 5th JD - Oneida County County Supreme Court & Judges.


April 7, 2020 - Update on the lawsuit from Tom West, received at 3:20 PM today...

"I wanted to take this opportunity to bring you up to date on developments with the New York State Court system. Several weeks ago, the Chief Administrative Judge of the New York Courts issued an order suspending all filings and activities on non-essential matters due to the coronavirus pandemic. This case falls into that category. However, today, the Chief Administrative Judge issued a revised order urging Justices to move forward with rendering decisions on all matters that have been fully submitted. This would include your case. We are hopeful that this clears the way for Justice Mackey to finally render a decision concerning this matter."

March 24, 2020 - Read another investigation of MVHS's new hospital concept titled, Downtown Hospital Project to be Built Upon Lies. Where you'll read...

In one of Assemblyman Brindisi’s emails he said of the downtown location: "I don’t want public opinion derailing this. Both he and DiMeo expressed regret that the public was able to see their emails. The emails revealed their private agendas regarding the downtown location.

The community's legal challenge awats a ruling on the merits in Albany Supreme Cuort.


March 22, 2020 - Governor Cuomo heralded for CONVID-19 stance, yet he wants to place Utica's only hospital beside downtown's CSX tracks? This while he warned and labeled tracks an Upstate danger?


February 25, 2020 - In 2015 the $300M prize was intended to help reduce Oneida County's hospital costs by 25% over five years. To be accomplished by "...transition health care from emergency rooms to more efficient community-based care in neighborhood facilities." Sadly, and corruptly, all Utica has recieved is a flattened historical downtown neighborhood...

And their backwards #MVHSDOWNTOWN concept would only increase emergency room use!


February 16, 2020 - Last Friday fourteen documents (597 pages) were dropped on Albany Supreme Court by the Respondents-Defendants. We'll share them soon. Important to note, MVHS does not own the land for this hospital concept, and they intend to keep knocking down historical assets in Utica's downtown CoLa Nieghborhood.

In the meantime. read the MVHS/Onieda County Bond Offering [404 pages, 2.47 MB], or just Appendix A: MVHS Business Overview [98 pages, 4.58 MB]. MVHS sold bonds, read Oneida County-endoresed "Muni Bonds". MVHS reveals huge budget increases, plus read Oneida County Bonding: MVHS Debt & Other Notes.

Oddly, MVHS stated they'd save $15M to $17M per year with a single integrated facility. However, without a new hospital today, they've only acquired a $15M annual debt payment (starting in 2020 and running until 2049), and $52.7M has been wasted on plans for a new hospital - Utica's only acute care hospital - that would be in a CSX Railroad Red Zone!
