New York State Governor Andrew M Cuomo


March 28, 2018 - We know there's ALWAYS MORE MONEY in the budget (if Cuomo or government projects want it), but Mr. Brindisi had a dream...


August 10, 2017 - Maybe it was the asm nano disaster? Now their downtown hospital disaster...


April 4, 2017 - Cuomo supports the ill-conceived Downtown Utica Hospital. A pledge of $300M made it into the NYS Budget twice. On the second occurrence, it was announced with great exuberance and detail. While MVHS, and everyone locally was waiting to hear about winning the $300M Grant, the award was sidetracked by the granting body, and came down near midnight, we tweeted...

The media covered it on April 5, 2017, $300M State Infusion Step Closer For New Utica Hospital...

New York is consistently leading the way in improving how we deliver medical care to our residents while thinking ahead to the future,” Gov. Cuomo said. “This is the kind of health care facility that we need to keep Mohawk Valley’s momentum of transforming the local economy through nanoscience research and creating thousands of good-paying jobs in both the immediate and long-term future. Access to high-quality health care services is a crucial aspect of the region’s economic strategy to thrive and grow.

Prior to the "budget extender" the "downtown" site was highly questioned, and not a given. However, with a middle-of-the-night Budget Extender, Cuomo Commented It, stating...

"$300 Million for Utica Hospital: New York State has awarded $300 million for the Mohawk Valley Health System to build a modern and efficient hospital in downtown Utica. This 392 bed, 750,000 square-foot world-class health care facility will replace the outdated and obsolete St. Luke’s Hospital Campus and St. Elizabeth Medical Center, further integrating the system of care in Oneida County. The new state-of-the-art hospital will offer emergency, acute inpatient, outpatient, primary care and other health care services in a single downtown location, improving the accessibility and quality of health care in the region. Mohawk Valley Health System’s project, awarded via competitive RFA, will strengthen the fiscal stability of the regional health care system, save taxpayer dollars, and bring thousands of jobs into downtown Utica."

Within 24 hours, the UticaOD exclaimed it...


Mr Cuomo is eyeing the Whitehouse, and has friends in high places...

Mr Cuomo wants to do big things...

Does Govenor Cuom know, or care, that his hospital would bulldoze Downtown Utica and that it is not all "crushing blighted" and "functionally obsolete"?



Locally there are many that hope Cuomo will "pull them up"...

Brindisi is of the same party and hoping to get to Congress. Utica Mayor seems safe with another term after "stealing" it, and County Executive even though a Republican, endorsed Cuomo. So delivering a hospital, keeping the faith and money flowing for Utica/Marcy Nano seems to transcend party lines...



And to those that say the money can't be moved around...

Plus, don't forget when the $300M left the budget, $100M Went Into Nano Technology up at SUNYIT.


July 24, 2014 - The Daily show with Jon Stewart offers, CSI - Cuomo Scandal Investigation. So corruption surrounding the hospital and Oneida County healthcare is not out of the realm of possibilities. For example, a Smoking Gun perhaps?


Look who else is backing Fiasco General.
