Hospital launches 2009 Family and Friends campaign

SCHUYLER COUNTY—Schuyler Hospital kicked off its 2009 Family and Friends Campaign which will help the September Hill Women’s Center.
Jim Howell, campaign chair, said the hospital’s goal this year is $150,000. Last year the Foundation exceeded its goal of $140,000. Howell said the funds usually go towards new equipment, but this year it will be for renovations. Two years ago the funds went to a physical therapy rehabilitation project. This year, Howell said choosing the project included finding one that would help as many people as possible.
Howell explained this year the Foundation will focus on the various villages and communtiies within Schuyler County. The foundation will also utilize committee volunteers who are also professionals in the communities to solicit donations.
Howell said in previous years getting the donations would rely on letters being sent out, a phone-a-thon, and two fundraising events. Those events are still part of the plan, though. The first, Antiques and Tapas, will be June 13 at the Montour House. Howell said Bruce Nelson, owner and developer of the Montour House, will let the Foundation use both the first and second floors to sell antiques. The other event of the year is the November Splendor. Howell said a venue had not been confirmed yet.
Changes to September Hill, just down the road from Schuyler Hospital, will include moving the sleep disorder center into the hospital. Howell said this will allow the hospital to make changes to the building. He explained the house has been serving its purpose, but it was built as a home, not for hospital facilities. Work, still being designed, will move Dr. William Saks to the first floor. Dr. Zarmina Aman will also be joining Saks at September Hill. Waiting and exam rooms, in addition to accessibility at the front of the building, will be renovated. Not all of the funds will be used for work. Some will also go towards education and support materials.
