Middletown, NY – The Orange Regional Medical Center Auxiliary recently donated $25,000 to the Hospital’s The Future is Orange Capital Campaign.
The Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation has launched the $3.3 million “The Future is Orange” Capital Campaign to raise $2 million in support of the equipment needs of the expansion project, raise $500,000 to support academic medicine by creating an endowment for research and education and to raise $500,000 to support a healing environment including a roof top gathering space, interior and exterior art. The Campaign will also promote the value of outpatient medical services, general wellness, integrated medical care, academic medicine and comprehensive cancer care services. Additionally, the Orange Regional campus will be promoted as a health destination campus, serving as a single location that continues to meet the health needs of the region.
“We are eternally grateful to the Auxiliary members for their commitment to our hospital in what has been a banner year for them,” said Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation President William Dauster. “They have worked incredibly hard to raise funds then donated those funds to help us complete our pediatric campaign and make among the first gifts to our new campaign for the expansion project.”
Construction on the new 153,000 square foot, five-story physician office building and a 26,000 square foot, single-story cancer center at the hospital’s main campus began in early 2015. When completed in the fall of 2016, the $99 million project will help relocate many outpatient services currently provided at other off-campus locations into new, state-of-the-art buildings on the existing 73-acre hospital campus in Middletown. Both new buildings will be patient-centered healing environments incorporating all the latest technology and amenities for patients and families. Plans also include adding an additional 800 convenient parking spaces.
The first two floors of the physician office building will house a world class array of the most advanced diagnostic medical technology available including (64 Slice Computerized Tomography, CT Wide-Bore Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI, Digital X-ray, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Positron Emission Tomography, PET/CT and Fluoroscopy). The Women’s Breast Center will house 3D Mammography, the most advanced imaging available for breast cancer detection. In addition, the outpatient and procedure center will provide the most technologically advanced care in a convenient and welcoming outpatient environment. The center will house four outpatient operating rooms, endoscopy services, five procedure rooms, a primary care office, urgent care, cardiac rehabilitation, a diabetes care center, cardiac rehabilitation, outpatient laboratory services, medical school classrooms, pre-surgical testing, a retail pharmacy, a bistro, and a community health resource center. Floors three to five will be occupied by Orange Regional Medical Group primary care and specialty physicians.
The 26,000 square foot Cancer Center will combine existing outpatient cancer therapy services including radiation oncology (True Beam and Rapid Arc Linear Accelerators, High Dose Radiation Unit) and Infusion Therapy, along with oncology exam rooms and associated nursing and care provider stations. The single-story Spagnoli Family Cancer Center will be attached to the main hospital building.
