During this holiday season, I would like to extend a heartfelt 'thank you' to our Hospital Family for improving healthcare in the Hudson Valley. Your efforts have touched the lives of thousands of patients and their families who turn to Orange Regional Medical Center for healthcare services. I would also like to offer my sincere appreciation to our employees for your generosity to the employee Capital Campaign, The Possible Dream and our annual giving program the Century Club Campaign. To date, employee contributions have totaled $753,159. Likewise, employee support has contributed to the success of the 2008-2009 Century Club Campaign totaling over $114,000.
In addition, many employees have demonstrated Orange Regional’s commitment to our community by extending generosity beyond the walls of this organization. Through your donations of time and money to Orange Regional’s United Way Campaign, we raised nearly $36,000 to aid a variety of programs and community initiatives for Orange County residents. Additionally, throughout the year, our hospital family has supported an array of fundraising efforts from charity walks to blood donations to bake sales. In addition to our goal of becoming the best regional hospital in New York State, the magnitude of our combined generosity demonstrates the significant role Orange Regional plays in our community. Thank you for your ongoing support.
