Lake Shore Health Care Center to close in January

Lake Shore Health Care Center in Irving will close Jan. 31, leaving 460 employees without jobs and eliminating one of Chautauqua County’s largest employers, hospital officials announced today.


The health care center is an affiliate of Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York, which has struggled financially since its formation in 2008 through the merger of Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk and the TLC Health Network. The TLC Network operated Lake Shore and the Gowanda Urgent Care & Medical Center.

The health care center alone was expected to lose $7 million this year, following losses in the past few years, said Scott Butler, vice president of community relations for Lake Erie Regional.

“This was a difficult decision that needed to be made, and we feel deeply for every community member and employee that this move will negatively impact,” Christopher Lanski, chairman of the health system’s board of directors, said in a statement
