When you give to The Greater Hudson Valley Family Health Center (GHVFHC) a 501 c 3 non-profit community health center, you become a member of our family of dedicated physicians, skilled health care professionals and community leaders who make it possible for a family lacking health insurance to see a doctor and get the care they need. One in three Orange County residents do not have adequate access to primary healthcare resulting in far too many people at risk for becoming gravely ill from sicknesses that early detection and medicines could have prevented.
We invite you to join us as we bring compassionate care to every GHVFHC patient and ensure that we will always be ready with state-of-the-art medical facilities and quality affordable health care to serve our community.
With ample financial support, we can:

Many individuals seek creative and meaningful ways to show public support of GHVFHC; honor a family name, or memorialize a loved one. Gifts of all sizes may be unrestricted or designated for a special project to help GHVFHC deliver the highest standards of patient care by creating new initiatives, upgrading current programs, or renovating and expanding our facilities. We are always available to discuss the appropriate opportunity for your gift and will help to identify opportunities that meet your particular needs and interests.
We ask that you take a leading role in building our region’s economic health and well being and become an investor in a solution to our health care crises. Our new center offers a meaningful and lasting way to recognize donors. Named gifts can pay tribute to or memorialize a family, a mentor, friend or business.

At this time, we are engaged in the construction of two new sites; 127 Main Street in Highland Falls and 290 Broadway in Newburgh. If you are interested in a named gift please contact Regina McGrade, Director of Development at (845) 220-3152.
