A New Hospital for Our Region
We have an exciting once in a lifetime opportunity to see a new hospital built in our community. The brand new regional hospital will replace acute inpatient services at the Brooks Campus and expand access and improve quality care for a broader, more diverse patient base.
We hope to see groundbreaking on our state-of-the-art 29 bed acute care hospital in the Village of Fredonia.

Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. was recently given a six-month reprieve from its deadline to complete the purchase of property – the site of the new hospital building – in the Village of Fredonia.
The property, currently a grape field off East Main Street, is still owned by Cornell Cooperative Extension, which granted the extension. Brooks-TLC’s contract to purchase was set to expire November 30.
“The contract was amended and extended through June 1, 2023 and we are grateful to Cornell for that,” stated Brooks-TLC President and CEO Ken Morris. “We remain hopeful the New York State Department of Health will approve the building project and release the project funds awarded in 2016.
Brooks-TLC in June received a one-year site plan extension requested of the Fredonia Planning Board.
To contact our elected/appointed officials and request they honor their commitment, allowing progression forward with the building project:
The Fredonia Planning Board on Tuesday, June 15, approved the request by the Brooks-TLC Hospital System for a one-year site plan extension for the construction of a new hospital, on East Main Street in the village.
“We are pleased the Fredonia Planning Board has agreed to a one-year extension with Brooks-TLC for our site plan for the proposed new hospital on East Main Street in Fredonia,” said Brooks-TLC President and CEO Mary LaRowe. “All of the stakeholders in this project continue to work diligently together to advance the process of building a new hospital for our community. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic delayed the process for the past 16-months, however, as the Covid-19 rate has steadily decreased in our community and throughout New York State, we are hopeful to see the process move forward in the near term.”
