The Columbia Memorial Hospital $10 million Fulfilling the Dream Capital Campaign is in the homestretch!  It is though generous donations such as the $15,000 pledge from the Stewart’s Shops, that we have raised over $7 million to date.  Thank you, Stewart’s Shops for your generous contribution!

In our final phase of raising $3 million for the Capital Campaign and as a natural progression in our comprehensive renovation plan to better serve our community, we will be renovating patient care areas to include the expansion of the Intensive Care Unit.  The ICU will be renovated to include private rooms with easily accessible, state-of-the-art technology at each bedside.  Also included are electronic medical records and pharmacy automation, part of our new technologies program.

Now, more than ever, we need the support of our communities – hospital staff, medical affiliates, vendors, local businesses and residents of Columbia, Greene and northern Dutchess counties.  So many members of our communities have already pledged their financial support.  We say, “thank you for your generosity.”  We now ask that everyone support, Columbia Memorial Hospital, our community hospital.
