New York State Senator William J. Larkin, Jr. (RC, Cornwall-on-Hudson) and New York State Assemblywoman Annie Rabbitt (RC, Greenwood Lake) recently visited Orange Regional Medical Center’s Arden Hill Campus in Goshen, and presented $250,000 in State aid to the hospital for new medical equipment and clinical software upgrades to better serve patients and their families.
The funds will support the general surgery, orthopedics and cardiology departments at Orange Regional.
“I am pleased that we were successful in securing this important funding for Orange Regional Medical Center,” said Senator Larkin. “This grant will directly help people in need of surgery, cardiovascular, and bone and joint care. I fully support the dedicated staff at Orange Regional Medical Center who work hard every day to provide the best care to patients in our community and know that this grant will assist them in these efforts.”
Assemblywoman Rabbitt said she is happy to have been able to help secure funding to improve Orange Regional Medical Center. “This will aid tremendously in keeping the medical center state-of-the-art and up to par with medical advances to the benefit of our community,” she said.
During their visit, Senator Larkin and Assemblywoman Rabbitt met with hospital officials and heard plans for the proposed new, 606,000 square-foot, 374-bed hospital on East Main Street in Middletown.
They also toured the hospital’s Goshen Campus, which lies within their legislative districts. The Senator and Assemblywoman made stops at the hospital’s Medical Surgical Unit and the Behavioral Health Unit, which has been expanded for the relocation of Orange Regional’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Unit formerly located at 2001 Route 17M in Goshen. The Outpatient Behavioral Health Unit offers adult, geriatric, child and adolescent counseling.
