Today we are reaching out for your support to help enable us to continue to provide the access and resources needed to ensure the high quality medical care you expect from NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital. This year alone our No-Wait Emergency Room responded to 40,000 patients who needed emergency care. One of those patients was a two year old child whose tiny fingers became entangled in a paper shredder. If not for the quick response and meticulous work of the medical team this child may have lost complete use of his hand. Also, the four year old who arrived in cardiac arrest and whose life we saved. These are two young lives, together with countless others of all ages, cared for successfully by the amazing team of physicians, nurses and support staff we all depend upon during times of crisis.
Our recent affiliation with NewYork-Presbyterian, one of the premier academic medical systems in the world, has added strength to our already excellent hospital. Through collaboration with ColumbiaDoctors, we are bringing additional services and greater access to some of the finest physicians in the New York metropolitan area, we remain confident that this affiliation is a perfect match for our community. We are focused on what matters most to you and your family.
We are in the midst of beginning several building projects to modernize and improve our Maternity Center and the Emergency Room, always keeping you, our patients, first and foremost in any new venture or enhancement. We want you to rely upon us during times of illness, crisis and the joy of new life. Please keep in mind that we are committed to ensuring that the patient experience is second to none for all of us. And as the largest employer in the area, so many of our staff reside in your community, we are your friends and neighbors, too.
Please consider making a tax-deductible charitable gift because one day we may be of utmost importance to you and your loved ones.
We want to be here for you in every way possible and, with your generous year-end gift, we assure you that NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital will be here for many years to come, bringing you greater access to state-of-the-art technology and exceptional medical care without having to travel great distances. Your gift, no matter the size, can make all the difference when it comes to the kind of services your local hospital provides.
Warmest wishes to you and your family and friends,
John C. Federspiel, President

Any individual, company, corporation, club, foundation or other organization may make gifts payable to The Foundation of NewYork-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital. Contributions may take many forms. Gifts of stock, bonds, and real property, as well as annual giving donations, benefit both the Hospital and the giver since they are tax deductible. There are also forms of deferred gifts such as bequests, trusts and life insurance, which help assure the future of the Hospital.
Gifts of cash are the most common form of a charitable gift. If you itemize your tax return, all such gifts must be completed by December 31st, in order to receive the deduction in your taxes.
Gifts of stock can yield excellent tax benefits for the donor, if they have been held for more than 12 months. Not only are such gifts generally deductible from income tax at their full value, but they also avoid capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on a sale.
