Middletown, New York – The Kiwanis Club of Minisink Valley made a $15,000 donation to Orange Regional Medical Center’s Building for Excellence Capital Campaign in support of the pediatric playroom that will be located on the 5th floor of the new hospital. The donation will aid in the construction of the playroom and all age-appropriate furnishings.
The Kiwanis Club of Minisink Valley is an active organization with 59 members. For 52 years, the Club has provided steadfast service and support to many community organizations and charities.
Immediate Past President Rich Malarski said, “Being that Kiwanis International is a service organization dedicated to children, this donation to Orange Regional for the pediatric playroom is a perfect fit for our Club and an excellent beginning to a continuing relationship with the pediatric unit at the new hospital.”
Club President David Morse said, “It has truly been an honor to serve as President this past year. The enthusiastic dedication of all our members working on projects has and will continue to be the backbone of our success.”
“We appreciate the dedication to Orange Regional and the children of our community that the Kiwanis Club of Minisink Valley has shown with this extraordinary gift,” said Orange Regional Foundation President Christine Maraia. “We look forward to a wonderful partnership in the coming years.”
The Building for Excellence campaign was launched in 2008 in support of Orange Regional’s new hospital construction. To date, the Campaign has received unprecedented support and raised more than $17.4 million towards the goal of $21 million. The campaign will continue through the opening of the new seven-floor hospital in the Town of Wallkill that will feature 354 private patient rooms. Once completed in 2011, it will be one of the largest medical centers between the Tappan Zee Bridge and Albany and provide a broad range of high-quality healthcare services including, but not limited to, general adult and pediatric medical/surgical beds, intensive care, maternity, orthopedics, oncology, and a 50-bay emergency department. Updates on the progress of construction and other information about the current and future Orange Regional Medical Center can be accessed at www.ormc.org.
