BAYONNE, NJ - Bayonne is “the kind of close knit community we love to serve,” Wayne Hatami, one of the proposed new buyers of the Bayonne Medical said in a statement. “We’re looking to engage with the Center’s leadership and employees, its unions, the mayor and community, and work closely with the doctors and nurses to ensure that Bayonne gets the quality acute care hospital it needs and deserves.”

As reported in TAPinto Bayonne, CarePoint Health, the current owners of the hospital that has provided care to city residents for more than 100 years, announced earlier this week that they had signed a Letter of Intent to sell the facility to BMC Hospital LLC.

The BMC Hospital team has long specialized in reviving financially distressed ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and making them viable for their communities, their statement read. Their proprietary turnaround approach involves close collaboration with physicians and nurses to improve health care, convenient patient-centered service, and state-of-the-art equipment. 

“We believe the Center’s staff is central to its success, so we will offer employment to current employees, keep the terms and conditions now in effect, and voluntarily recognize each union as the representative of each unit that it now represents,” continues Hatami. 

BMC Hospital LLC is comprised of Wayne Hatami, Anthony Degradi, and Feliks Kogan who are part owners of multiple ambulatory surgery centers in New York and New Jersey.
