Donation Benefits Pediatric Department at Orange Regional Medical Center

Jan 1st, 2014 | By | Category: In Your Town

Hudson Heritage Federal Credit Union (HHFCU) has generously donated $15,000 to Orange Regional Medical Center. The donation has helped establish a much-needed inpatient room in the Hospital’s Pediatric department.

“We’re so proud to support Orange Regional’s initiative to develop advanced Pediatric services in our community, as children account for 26% of our area’s population,” said HHFCU President and CEO, Michael Ciriello. “Access to specialty care locally has become an increasing challenge for this segment of our population. The majority of these patients previously had to travel 90 minutes to Westchester Medical Center for specialty care.”

The donation was made to the Hospital’s Lend A Hand For Kids Campaign that focuses on the development of advanced Pediatric services in our region. The Pediatric Center at Orange Regional Medical Center will develop in phases over the next three years and will seek to address the vast majority of Pediatric healthcare needs. The Pediatric Center will provide children, from birth through age 17, with quality care in a child-friendly, family centered environment. The Pediatric Center will address the unique medical needs of our youngest patients in an atmosphere specifically designed to reduce their anxiety about hospitals. It will provide access to a variety of specialists in a state-of-the-art facility.

“We are delighted that Hudson Heritage chose to partner with Orange Regional in helping to fund our ability to bring advanced pediatric services to the children of our community,” said Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation President, Christine Maraia.
