St Elizabeth Medical Center (SEMC)

In the raging new hospital debate, is there a Smoking Gun related to SEMC and the $300M From Albany?


St. Elizabeth Medical Center established in South Utica in 1917, after being in three different buildings on Whitesboro Street [Ref.]. There is a plan to merge St. Elizabeth's with the seaparate Faxton-St Luke's Healthcare, however this has not yet been accomplished [Ref.].

How old? When constructed the Current St. Elizabeth Hospital was situated in a wooded plot in area of Utica called, "No Man's Land." The original structure measured 131,700 square feet. Today SEMC has a 500-car, 3-level, parking garage, multiple surface lots, and the buildings measure 369,700 square feet.

A separate C.O.N. process (beyond the new hospital concept) was said to have begun for a merger, but withdrawn. See, MVHS making progress toward hospital merger, groundbreaking. Where one learns...

"The health system filed a certificate of need application for the transfer of St. Elizabeth Medical Center’s assets to Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare last month at the direction of an employee of the New York State Health Department, Scholefield said. But it just withdrew the application after another health department employee told the health system not to file the 577-page document — which is filled with financial data that will need updating — until a year before the hospital is expected to open, he said."

"Another unresolved issue is the fact that workers at the health system’s two campuses belong to two unions. They will have to consolidate into one union with a common contract before the new hospital opens."


A small percentage of St. Elizabeth's Is 100-years Old. The St. Elizabeth Medical Center campus has the College of Nursing, which oddly would not move downtown! This certainly further complicates any downtown "Eds & Meds" arguement.

See the Utica Hospital Timeline.


March 21, 2019 - From the MVHS FEIS: The SEMC site will be converted into an outpatient extension clinic to be known as "St. Elizabeth Campus". MVHS prefers that this site maintain its current Permanent Facility Identifier (PFI) Number. Pursuant to the CON application, the following programs and services will remain on the St. Elizabeth site, with no construction or relocation necessary:

 Sleep center services (Mohawk Valley Sleep Disorders Center)
 The College of Nursing
 The cardiac and thoracic surgery-related services (all of which are medical-only services; no surgical services will be provided at this site)
 Primary care and laboratory patient service center (PSC) services. These programs and services are not currently in the hospital building.

Essentially, programs currently located in the College of Nursing Building (e.g., Sleep Lab, administrative services), and the physician offices in the Marian Medical Building will remain on the SEMC campus.

Of SEMC & Cement Shoes...

SEMC is a Catholic hospital and is affiliated with the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities and the Syracuse Dioceses. In the raging new hospital debate, is there a Smoking Gun related to SEMC?

They tell us that a single board (MVHS) is running Utica's hospitals. That's not entirely true...

One "corporate" board, but what of the "Partners in Franciscan Ministries, Syracuse, NY"? Per ProPublica, EIN: 452279986?

Looking into FORM 990 PART VI, SECTION A, LINE 7A, "Answer "Yes" on line 7a if at any time during the organization's tax year there were one or more persons (other than the organization's governing body itself, acting in such capacity) that had the right to elect or appoint one or more members of the organization's governing body, whether periodically, or as vacancies arise, or otherwise. If "Yes," describe on Schedule O (Form 990 or 990-EZ) the class or classes of such persons and the nature of their rights."

Reading about Sole Member as we look into the various entities under MVHS. Also there are two different nursing unions, so is this the biggest reason they're seek a "new plot of land", and a new corporate name?

Furthermore, is this a Smoking Gun?


August 3, 2018 - This hospital cannot be fairly described as "100 years old"...

These renovations total $34.5M, plus there are many other additional new assets, which all make this a modern healthcare asset for both Oneida County and the City of Utica.

#NoHospitalDowntown is not anti-new hospital, we simply do not want a hospital in Downtown Utica. Here's Why We Oppose The Downtown Utica Hospital Concept and Many Agree!

We're building a Utica Hospital Timeline



No Studies, No Reports, thus we remain #NoHospitalDowntown
