Margaretville Health Foundation welcomed guests to its 5th Annual Donor and Sponsor Appreciation Event.

Mr. Scarpino addressed the guests to emphasize the inevitable changes coming to the landscape of healthcare, affecting urban and rural areas alike, such as our community of the Central Catskills. The message was that the upcoming affiliation of the HAHV with Westchester Medical Center will bring together a larger network of resources to benefit and strengthen the facilities encompassing HAHV.

A very special Thank You goes to our hosts Indrani Mukherjee and Jeff Tomasi and their family for opening their home to our Donors and Sponsors. Thanks go to the dedicated Business Community Sponsors, of our year round efforts and events, Margaretville Telephone Company, Freshtown, NBT Bank, Sluiter Agency, and Sanico. Our donors past and present please be assured that your donations remain in this community to support our healthcare facilities, applaud yourselves. Kudos to our awesome auctioneer Dennis Metnick, roving photographer Kevin Spelman, our caterer Chef Deanna and staff, and New Kingston’s very own Brittany Elliott for supplying musical entertainment.

Our healthcare facilities, Margaretville Hospital (MH) and Mountainside Residential Care Center (MRCC), are utilized by many of us in the community. The services that MH and MRCC offer are of vital necessity to our Central Catskill towns and villages. We applaud those who recognize that “A community with quality healthcare is a community with a future”.

Thank you,
Heather Brighton
Chair, Margaretville Health Foundation
