Erie County Medical Center

Erie County will be seeking approval of a significant loan this week.

County Comptroller David Shenk will present lawmakers with a request for $80 million to cover expenses connected with Erie County Medical Center. The county's mandated responsibility in covering costs associated with care for poor and uninsured patients through the hospital and its nursing facility are expected to be higher than estimated.

The borrowing is necessary as the bill will likely be due before the county's revenue sources arrive.
 

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
