December 15, 2010 - Monticello, N.Y. - Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) received a $2,500 donation toward the cost of new digital mammography services to be offered at its Women's Health Center from Combined Energy Services, a Sullivan County energy supplier.
In conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Combined Energy Services (CES), a dependable supplier of gas energy to the Catskills, donated 1 cent to CRMC for every gallon delivered by its "pink" delivery truck during the month. The funds will be used to support new digital mammography services to be offered at Catskill Regional's Women's Health Center, at 60 Jefferson Street in Monticello.
"Catskill Regional Medical Center is dedicated to improving the health of our community by providing exceptional health care services and the latest state-of-the-art equipment," said Steven Ruwoldt, CEO of Catskill Regional Medical Center. "This generous gift from CES will help enable CRMC to promote our digital mammography services throughout Sullivan County when our new diagnostic center in Monticello opens in 2011."
CES began their philanthropic program in 2006. In 2009, the company's principals selected Catskill Regional Medical Center to ensure the local community would directly benefit.
CES co-owner Mike Taylor said, "This program is a good way to give to a great cause while at the same time help to increase public awareness that early detection is the key to survival. We believe if this campaign sparks one person to get a mammogram and it saves them, then it was all worth it."
The CRMC Women's Health Center offers services for women of all ages, including gynecological exams, mammography, ultrasound, bone densitometry and obstetrical care. For more information on the Women's Health Center, please call 845-794-7897.
