Exceptional Healthcare is Vital to a Strong Community

We’re committed to improving your local hospital and helping build a better community for us all. Your commitment makes it possible.

At Community Memorial, we know that exceptional healthcare is vital to a strong community.

We’ve already been recognized as one of the best quality healthcare institutions in New York State. We’re proud of that wand we’re continuing to push the boundaries of what people can expect from a local critical care hospital.

That means ongoing enhancements, like our new Emergency Department and Inpatient Surgery Wing. It means improved radiology facilities, better access to rehabilitation services, and much more. It means increased efficiencies, cost savings, and advancements in patient care and safety. And because of the donations from our community, both large and small, these goals are becoming a reality.

What you’re making happen is incredible. Thank you.

Why We Give

Jeff Coakley, President/CEO at Community Memorial Hospital

“A transformation like this happens so seldom, making it more important than ever to ask the community for their support in our mission to provide the highest quality of care”

L. Hazel Jack, Vice President and Chief of Staff to the President at Colgate University, Community Memorial Hospital Board Member

“It feels good to be able to contribute and know that I’m not just benefiting from Community Memorial, but I’m also giving back to it.”

Dr. Jennifer Meyers, Pediatrician at Community Memorial Hospital

“Community Memorial has always provided quality care close to home, but having facilities and equipment in order to provide that care is essential. And we can’t do that without the support financially of our community.”

Building Today. Tomorrow. Always.

Community Memorial is undergoing an exciting, transformational project – the renovation and expansion of over half the organization, promoting quality patient care and safety. Improving efficiencies and cost savings, and increasing access to care across the Community Memorial system.
