Naming Opportunities

Beautiful spaces like the Lawrence A. Testa Healing Garden can only be developed and sustained through the generosity of others. Recently the ORMC Foundation funded a Fitness Trail around the hospital campus' perimeter. Patients, staff and visitors use these natural spaces to enhance their health and quiet reflection.

To continue Mr. Testa's wish to provide outdoor healing spaces, the following is a list of naming opportunities in the Garden and on our new Fitness Trail.

There are seven stations on the Fitness Trails and all provide different exercises but together offer a full work out. Donor recognition is affixed to an adjacent post. Two stations remain available for naming.

Benches - $5000
Benches are located in the Testa Garden and along the Fitness trail. There are 11 of 13 benches available for naming in the Testa Garden. Benches along the Fitness Trail are sold out. Donor recognition plaque is affixed directly to the bench.

Birdhouses - $1200
Houses are mounted atop a 4x4 post with a donor recognition plaque.

Memorial Gifts/Tribute Gifts

At a difficult time in our lives, we often think of making Memorial or Tribute Gifts as gestures of love, remembrance and appreciation in lieu of sending flowers. The Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation receives many Memorial Gifts throughout the year and often they are designated for a specific area or department of the hospital. The Foundation Office sends an acknowledgement to the family that a gift was made in memory of their loved one. If you would like to direct family and friends to make memorial gifts to Orange Regional Medical Center, the following is suggested language for an obituary or other tribute:

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation in memory of {deceased name} to Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation, 707 East Main Street, Middletown, NY 10940

If you would like to make a Memorial Gift or be notified of gifts received in memory of your loved one, please contact the Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation Office at 845-333-2333 or

Matching Gifts

Many corporations and businesses encourage philanthropy by matching employee donations. For example, if you made a $100 donation to Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation, your employer might match that and also contribute $100. Please ask your Human Resources Department if they offer a matching gift program.


Throughout the year Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation conducts events and seeks donations of goods and services to be used as auction items, give-aways or prizes. For example, gift certificates for restaurants, beverages and snacks for the Golf Classic, prizes for drawings, etc. If you would like to discuss an opportunity to support through a Gift-in-Kind donation, please contact the Foundation Office. Due to infection control, gifts must be new and unused.

An example of a Gift-In-Kind would be our Child Life Program Wish List - which you can view to see items you can donate to the children in our care.
