We almost moved to Lake Placid all those years ago. Lake Placid Hospital was independent then and running well. The hospital offered my wife a job there. We were advised that a merger was about to take place so we met with the new administration of AMC in Saranac Lake and immediately felt this was not a good move for us. Lake Placid hospital was about to lose its identity and fork over more money and property than we felt this was worth. We felt this was a bad deal for Lake Placid which had little to gain from any merger. I got the impression from the new AMC management that the state was pushing for this merger because the two hospitals were so close together. After all these year and now closing the Lake Placid hospital unit I feel that we were right . It's too bad Lake Placid ever merged with AMC. AMC runs the show up there and Lake Placid is treated as a obedient servant. Too bad you can't disassociate yourself from AMC and become independent again.
