A sudden change at the top at Massena Memorial Hospital, with the removal of chairwoman of the Board of Managers.
In a letter, Massena Town Supervisor Steve O'Shaughnessy said chairwoman Susan Bellor will be replaced.
No successor is named. The letter said, "The change was prompted by continued poor financial results of the hospital and the need for a change in leadership."
This comes at a time when the hospital's board surprised the town board with an announcement of what larger hospital Massena Memorial was going to affiliate with.
Friday's letter from the town supervisor reiterates the hospital is "owned" by the town, and run day-to-day by the hospital board of managers.
We've reached out to Bellor for comment.
