The New York Times says it will not reveal any details about its plans to open new Loyola University Medical Center in Manhattan’s financial district.
The hospital, which is expected to open in 2021, would replace St. Agnes Hospital in the Financial District, which opened in 1960.
A spokesman for the Times says the newspaper did not seek permission from Loyolah.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected on Thursday to unveil a plan to transform the financial district, which includes the financial core of the city and its outer suburbs, into a “transformational city.”
De Blasio’s plan includes a plan for a “world-class” medical center in the area.
New Yorkers will pay the highest rates for health care in the country, but that is not the primary reason they choose to stay home, according to a poll from the American Action Forum in June.
