St. Elizabeth Medical Center (SEMC) and Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) have each received grant funding of $50,000 from The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc. and the Rosamond G. Childs Fund to assist with the legal and consultant services for their joint affiliation project.
“Both organizations are grateful for The Community Foundation’s support of our affiliation plans,” said Scott H. Perra, FACHE, president/CEO of FSLH. “Our strategic plans focus on meeting the needs of our community now and into the future. The grant is a tremendous benefit to both organizations and helps us to defray some of the significant costs that come with this type of collaboration.”
The Honorable Norman I. Siegel, Chair of SEMC’s Board of Trustees, agreed. “In these challenging economic times for healthcare, we have an obligation to area residents to ensure the long-term fiscal health of both St. Elizabeth and Faxton St. Luke’s while continuing to meet our collective mission,” he said. “We appreciate this generous assistance with our plan.”
