Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center To Be Re-Purposed

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Despite the community’s best efforts to keep the Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center open, Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Mental Health Commissioner Michael Hogan are proceeding with plans to transfer operations to Syracuse.

The children’s center, however, will remain, and expanded funding will be given to local outpatient services.

State Senator Joseph Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi have been lobbying the state to keep the facility in place, questioning the financial ramifications of the Syracuse move.  Brindisi says they have been successful in cutting the number of jobs lost to about 20.

The building, which Brindisi says has been considered an eyesore by many, is being repurposed. Legislators are looking into plans to redevelop the campus.
