Orleans Community Health Foundation:
Supporting Orleans Community Health since 1981
The Orleans Community Health Foundation exists to address the healthcare needs of Orleans, Northern Genesee and Eastern Niagara Counties. We strive to engage the community in a unified commitment to Orleans Community Health and facilitate financial support to ensure our friends and family have quality healthcare close to home.
A group of community members established The Friends of Medina Memorial Hospital in 1981, with the desire to support the development vision of Medina Memorial Hospital in Medina, New York. They began raising funds to modernize the Hospital so that their neighbors, friends, and family had access to a quality healthcare facility without having to travel beyond their backyard. This vision continues today with the Foundation securing financial resources to provide updates and enhancements to all Orleans Community Health sites and services: Medina Memorial Hospital; OCH Albion Healthcare Center; Lake Plains Dialysis Center; Certified Medical Rehabilitation; Skilled Nursing Facility; and Community Partners outreach & education.
The Orleans Community Health Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. These men and women from across our service area evaluate the needs brought to them by the Orleans Community Health administration, set fundraising goals, and help develop events and campaigns to reach these goals. Operations are managed by the Foundation’s Executive Director and an Executive Assistant, responsible for carrying out the organization’s work.
If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 798-8061.
