— The New York State Health Commissioner has approved the partnership between Montefiore Health System and St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.

The action makes Montefiore the parent and co-operator of St. Luke’s.

The two first announced their intent for partnership in January 2016. The State of New York Public Health and Health Planning Council approved the relationship in late 2017, which was followed by approval from the State Health Commissioner this month.

Montefiore and St. Luke’s combined are a key component of Montefiore’s regional strategy to offer access to cutting edge academic medicine, research and quality care, both locally and throughout the region.

“This is such a proud moment: the final step in the process of joining our systems in order to expand the best of value-based care and clinical excellence to the region,” said Steven M. Safyer MD, president and CEO Montefiore Medicine. “We would not be here today without a lot of visionary thinking, and we owe a deep debt of gratitude to the dedicated leadership of St. Luke’s Cornwall and its board of trustees, for believing that together we can really make a difference.”

Throughout the last two years, Montefiore and St. Luke’s have worked to integrate the community hospital into the larger system with the addition of programs and services.

Since that time, St. Luke’s has added thoracic surgery and also expanded its physical medicine footprint as a result of a partnership with Burke Rehabilitation Hospital.

St. Luke’s has also grown its oncology program significantly, including the addition of a new medical director of Radiation Oncology as well as a breast and plastic surgeon to provide comprehensive cancer care to the community.

Montefiore Health System provides care to approximately three million people in the Bronx, Westchester and the Hudson Valley. It is comprised of 11 hospitals and close to 200 outpatient care sites.

St. Luke’s has main campuses in both Newburgh and Cornwall, and several offsite facilities throughout the region.
