UTICA, N.Y. -- Mohawk Valley Health System began closing on five properties within the footprint of the new regional medical center in downtown Utica.

The property owners had previously signed purchase option agreements with MVHS to sell their properties.

"These individuals and businesses share our vision for a state-of-the-art regional medical center that is integral to the new vision for Downtown Utica and healthcare in our region,” said Bob Scholefield, the executive vice president/COO.

For the past two years, MVHS has been working to acquire the properties and assisting businesses in finding alternate locations.

HJ Brandeles Corp. has relocated to Judd Road, Resource Center for Independent Living is in the process of relocating to the old Boston Store building in downtown Utica.

Park Outdoor Advertising of New York is moving its offices from 514/524 Lafayette Street in Utica to 2429 Chenango Road.

After a property closing is completed, MVHS and its contracted partners will begin the process of abatement of hazardous materials within that site.
