February 29, 2012 – Harris, N.Y. – WSUL/WVOS raised $65,068 for Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) on Saturday, February 25, during the 34th annual Heart-a-thon, which broadcasted live from the hospital's garden level café.
"WVOS/WSUL goes above and beyond putting this event together, and their passion for this cause shows," said J.P. McGuirk, CRMC's Director of Marketing and Public Relations. "CRMC would like to thank WSUL/WVOS, all of the volunteers who dedicate their time to making the event a success, and to all of the donors - we are very grateful to be in such a caring community."
The funds raised from this year’s event will be used toward the purchase of new telemetry units for the 5th floor. The telemetry system provides wireless bedside monitoring between a central station and patient, and continuous surveillance for ambulatory cardiac patients.
