Steve DiMeo, President of Mohawk Valley EDGE


This downtown hospital Concept is not about regional healthcare, it's a cover-up! A cover for the failed company and job attraction efforts of the Mohawk Valley EDGE. We're tracking the results of MV EDGE, their involvement in the new Utica hospital, regional healthcare, and their president's concept to bulldoze Downtown Utica - which is the last straw!

Stay tuned as we report, investigate and try to save Downtown Utica from Steve's wrecking ball...


February 14, 2018 - Steve (Robert Moses) DiMeo has another failed attempt at stopping private development...


February 16, 2018 - Looking into #Emailgate we read MVEDGE president, Steve DiMeo say, "I guess the hospital can reduce costs if they just go and put this on the St. Luke's campus."

Then there are these MV500 Emails Regarding The Downtown Utica Hospital too.


February 10, 2018 - Last year MV EDGE president, Steve DiMeo offered Warning To City: No Garage, No New Hospital. Taxpayers then learned about a secret meeting, then a "M.O.U." turned into a "M.O.A.", as #NoHospitalDowntown tracked the M.O.U. / M.O.A. Headlines. Eventually the Oneida County Executive and City of Utica Mayor signed an agreement. However today we learn the mayor had no authority to place taxpayers into this debt: Palmieri-Picente-MVHS Downtown Utica Hospital Parking Garage Deal Is Meaningless


July 29, 2017 - President of MVEDGE, Steve DiMeo, ignores the facts about parking garages...

Cities are not building them anymore, they tearing them down or converting them. Even Rome NY

July 25, 2017 - Steve DiMeo's talk get tough...


August 26, 2017 - Steve DiMeo wants to crash the Downtown Utica party. Downtown came back to life without his help, and now he thinks he can help? Sad Steve goes about trashing what's happening, so he can then try to create a fake narrative so he can then suggest he's got the answers. No thank you sir...


July 19, 2017 - Steve DiMeo doesn't want Downtown Utica development that he doesn't have his hands on, in fact he tried to crush a great new business from opening...

Like his Billion Dollar Nano effort, Steve did not succeed, and Utica has welcomed


Here's Steve depicted blowing bubbles, as he tries to inflate Fiasco General. Bill is the guy at the top who's in one of Steve's bubbles, Bill is the City of Utica Comptroller...


July 10, 2017 - WIBX950's Bill Keeler: Last Week's Show Notes

MV EDGE - Steve DiMeo of Mohawk Valley EDGE (listen at minute 4:45) on the Proposed Downtown Utica Hospital. Steve uses bad information; the Brookings Institution never suggested moving a huge hospital into a small downtown, Read More. Also the hospital will not have 4,000 employees in Downtown Utica, as they operate 40 different healthcare locations and the Faxton Hospital site is not closing. So the number touted for downtown is considerably less. And Steve, the New Orleans hospital that you reference is not located in downtown New Orleans...

Also note, small Downtown Utica is NOT, the MUCH larger Downtown Buffalo...

Buffalo- Population: 261,310 | Area: 52.5 Sq. Miles | Downtown: 465 Acres
Utica- Population: 60,600 | Area: 17.2 Sq. Miles | Downtown: 200 Acres


August 25, 2017 - Downtown Utica doesn't need the type of help Steve DiMeo offers! Over a billion dollars of taxpayer money into Nano, just a dozen jobs? A guy who buses an entire high school population out of their city, so he can build "population" on his business park? No thanks Steve...


We tried to obtain information about the Downtown Utica hospital concept, Steve DiMeo told us "NO!"


April 17, 2017 - One theory, Steve DiMeo hoping to be seen as an overachiever aiding Governor Cuomo, pulled-out all the stops to rebuild a downtown he sees as "obsolete and totally blighted". He's wrong, and his downtown hospital concept will fail.

The good news is that we'll save Utica from joining 20 Failed Projects Involving Eminent Domain Abuse, where we read: "The argument is always the same... tax-hungry bureaucrats and land-hungry developers claim that the use of eminent domain is necessary for economic development. They promise everything from high-rise condominiums to trendy shopping malls, all in the name of more taxes and jobs. There is a strong incentive for cities and developers to over-hype the benefits of individual private development projects involving eminent domain in order to garner political and public support. But it turns out that many of these projects are failures. This report details 20 prominent examples"



May 11, 2016 - Use Our Money (Lots of Our Money), Then Withhold Information! The MVHS Board of Directors worked with Mohawk Valley EDGE on their current Downtown Utica hospital project per the image link that follows...

However, this past week we learned that the planning information is not available to residents and taxpayers who have questions. This per their President, Mr Steven DiMeo "EDGE is a private, New York not-for-profit corporation... EDGE has no plans to search files for the records which you seek..."

Meanwhile nearly all of Mohawk Valley EDGE's $5,000,000+ dollar budget comes from New York State taxpayers.

Interestingly, the CEO of the Mohawk Valley Health System, Mr Scott Perra, also sits on the Mohawk Valley EDGE's Board of Directors. This maybe be all-good-and-well, however just don't ask questions about funding, the hospital concept, etc. as these leaders have our very best interests at hand, right?
