NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) – The New York State Department of Health provided NewsChannel 9 with a list of hospitals that it claims have so few open beds for incoming patients that it can regulate facilities ability To offer operations that are not required for emergencies.

Seven of the hospitals are in central New York, including three in Syracuse … Upstate University Hospital, Upstate’s Community Hospital, and Crouse Hospital. All three hospitals have already stopped or restricted operations.

In a briefing Tuesday afternoon, Onondaga County’s Ryan McMahon said the state’s numbers do not match the data sent directly to him by local hospital administrations.

Read the DOH statement below:

On Friday, the day the governor signed the state of emergency, 37 hospitals across New York state had a capacity of 10% or less. These hospitals are listed in the table below (in alphabetical order by region). Please note that this data is constantly changing.

In the event that a facility has limited capacity (bed capacity less than 10%), the facility or the ministry may, at the discretion of the health officer, restrict non-essential procedures in that facility.

The Ministry of Health continues to work with hospital systems ahead of the Friday, December 3rd implementation date, as well as additional criteria.
