The guest speaker at the December 11th breakfast meeting of the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce will be Robert S. Ross, Executive Vice President for the Northern Region of WMCHealth.

HealthAlliance is part of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.

The breakfast, scheduled for 7:30-9:00 a.m. at the Best Western Plus in Kingston, is sponsored by Rondout Savings Bank and will also feature the Kingston High School Caroling Ensemble, which will entertain breakfast attendees with festive holiday songs.

Ross will update Chamber members on HealthAlliance Hospital’s $134.9-million, 127,000-square-foot expansion and renovation of its Mary’s Avenue campus. He also is expected to discuss network updates and physician recruitment.

The effort includes the consolidation of all hospital services to the Mary’s Avenue campus and the conversion of the Broadway Campus into a walkable health village. 

The combined construction on the two HealthAlliance campuses is expected to cost $134.9 million, with $88.8 million coming from the New York State Capital Restructuring Financing Program. The balance will from come from WMCHealth, HealthAlliance and a capital fundraising campaign.

The development project combines the most advanced medical facilities and technology to promote healing and well-being for the hospital’s patients. 

Chamber breakfast programs are a great way to network with other local business leaders and stay on top of current events. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. For more information or to register, call the Chamber at (845) 338-5100 or go online at www.ulsterchamber.org.
