Ellis Hospital, health care network to remain independent
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) — A Schenectady hospital and health care network has decided to remain independent.
The Board of Trustees of Ellis Medicine said Thursday it has opted against affiliating with another organization after studying the issue for two years. Ellis Medicine includes Ellis Hospital, McClellan Street Health Center, Bellevue Woman’s Center and Medical Center of Clifton Park.
The board says Ellis Medicine is clinically and financially strong and that remaining independent best serves their patients.
Ellis will still collaborate with other health care organizations.
