Utica Hospital Cost Increase Pegged

$548 Million Is The Price

In Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente’s 2020 budget presentation, the figure of $548 million dollars was noted to be the new price tag for the proposed hospital for the Mohawk Valley area.

MVHS officials have said that the cost had increased from the original $480 million dollar estimate.

Those increases have been attributed to a high cost for property acquisition as well as steel, due to the U.S. tariff squabbles, and a shortage of construction workers.
