FL Health Responds To Announcement That OB Docs Are Leaving

As we have been reporting the obstetricians who work for Finger Lakes Medical Associates have decided to stop delivering babies at Geneva General Hospital on May 1st and move to Newark Wayne Community Hospital . 

Finger Lakes Medical Associates say that it's a matter of safety and not money, as there are not enough doctors to deliver babies at Geneva General Hospital. They say that puts patients at risk.

Finger Lakes Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jason Feinberg feels they can open new talks to keep the doctors in Geneva



Back up plans are being developed. 500 to 600 babies a year are delivered in Geneva.
