The report says that Yan Moshe, the owner of the Excel Surgery Center in Hackensack, has filed an application with the state Department of Health pledging $3 million in upgrades for the 204-bed, for-profit facility that has been struggling for years.
The hospital was hit with a $28,000 fine last month, raising the total fines in recent years to $211,000, for failing to file audited financial statements on time – if at all, The Record reports.
The newspaper learned of the multi-million dollar offer through and Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request and Moshe said in his state application that he plans on keeping “substantially all the current staff employed.”
“He plans” is the keyword here. No obligation.
