We’re strong believers in giving back to the community. When we learned that Vassar Brothers Medical Center (VBMC) had embarked on a $466 million project to expand its facilities, we pledged our support with a $25,000 donation.

Located in Poughkeepsie, VBMC brings world-class health care to many communities in the Hudson Valley. The expansion, which is expected to take two years, includes the construction of a pavilion with 264 private patient rooms, an emergency and trauma center with 66 treatment rooms and a surgical department with robotic technology. It will also include a rooftop helicopter landing pad. Read more about VNMC.
