SPOTLIGHT

Goodbye, Stellaris — hello, North Shore-LIJ

After months of preparation and due diligence, the Northern Westchester Hospital board of trustees announced approval of a plan to join the North Shore-LIJ Health System last week. Boards at both organizations approved NWH joining the NS-LIJ Health System. The agreement is expected to be finalized in the first quarter of 2015.

Along with this merger, the past weeks and months have brought a flurry of similar changes. The Mount Kisco Medical Group is expanding its existing clinical affiliation agreement with the Mount Sinai Health System; White Plains Hospital has become part of Montefiore Health System; Phelps Memorial Hospital, like Northern Westchester Hospital, is joining the NS-LIJ Health System; and Lawrence and Hudson Valley hospitals are becoming part of New York-Presbyterian. Montefiore has also acquired Sound Shore and is pursuing St. John’s and Nyack hospitals.

The mergers mirror national business trends — the big get bigger, and the smaller are swallowed up. Northern Westchester Hospital’s revenue was $243 million in 2012. Read more >

Group seeks $2.5 to bring
art house to Bedford

By ANTHONY R. MANCINI

A group of Bedford residents who want to see the Bedford Playhouse turned into an art house cinema are expressing extreme urgency to people interested, and are throwing the project into high gear. Specifically, the recently dubbed Friends of Bedford Playhouse are asking for $2.5 million of donations by March 1 to fund renovations at the theater.

The Playhouse is currently occupied by Bow Tie Cinemas, a movie theater chain, which is leasing the two-screen theater space. Bow Tie has indicated that it will not renew its lease with the property’s owner, Alchemy Properties, after the owner declined to reduce the rent. The theater company is set to vacate the Playhouse by the end of the year.

John Farr, a Bedford resident who is spearheading the Friends of Bedford Playhouse efforts, said Tuesday that no other theater company has been interested in renting out the Playhouse. He said this presents the perfect opportunity to establish a nonprofit cinema at the Playhouse, but the biggest hurdle to that plan is that Alchemy expects financial commitment to the project in a little more than three months.  Read more >
