State Health meets with E.J. Noble officials


GOUVERNEUR — E.J. Noble Hospital officials met Wednesday in Albany with representatives of the state Health Department and Samaritan Medical Center for face-to-face discussion of a collaboration to help the Gouverneur hospital rectify deficiencies in its lab.

The scope of Samaritan’s involvement is still being determined, Samaritan spokeswoman Krista A. Kittle said. A time line on when E.J. Noble might reopen remains part of a corrective plan under review by the Health Department, spokesman Bill Schwarz said.

The Health Department closed E.J. Noble’s lab Sept. 28, which prompted a shutdown of its acute care services, including inpatient care, surgeries and the emergency room. On Friday, the hospital submitted proposals to the Health Department from both Samaritan Medical Center, Watertown, and Canton-Potsdam Hospital, Potsdam, on possible lab supervision along with a corrective plan addressing deficiencies.
