Tri-Town Regional Hospital in Sidney has opened an outpatient specialty services clinic on its second floor, offering cancer and orthopedic care, plastic surgery and general surgery outpatient services.
“Access to specialty care is an identified need in the Tri-Town region,” said Dan Ayres, the hospital’s chief executive officer. “For most services, people living in the area have to travel quite a distance and that can be tough, especially for cancer patients. Having an outpatient specialty clinic in Sidney will be a great help to the people living in Delaware County.”
The hospital, which is part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, plans to add vascular services at the clinic as well.
New life for restaurant
The Bull’s Head Inn, a Cobleskill restaurant built in 1802, will be reopening with new ownership, according to the Schoharie Times Journal.
Partners Chris Guldner and Mary Sagendorf recently bought the restaurant and plan to reopen it during the summer, according to the report.
It closed in late summer of 2011.
“One day I was poking around online, and I saw the Bull’s Head for sale,” Guldner told the newspaper. “It seemed like such a nice place, and we were looking for an investment.”
“It saddened me every time I drove by and saw it closed,” said Sagendorf, a Cobleskill native. “It was such a wonderful gathering place.”
