Hospital to Honor Ulster County Executive Mike Hein
The Board of Trustees of Ellenville Regional Hospital and the Ellenville Regional Hospital Foundation are pleased to announce that
Mike Hein, Ulster County Executive, has been chosen as the honoree at the Hospital's annual Gala and Silent Auction.
Ellenville Regional Hospital’s Annual Gala will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the White Wolf Restaurant and Lounge in Napanoch, NY. This year’s event will once again include a Journal and fabulous Silent Auction!
As Ulster County’s first and only County Executive, Mike Hein has proven to be a highly effective leader with a statewide reputation as a reformer. He has completely transformed County government, with a focus on ensuring that high quality services are available and delivered in the most efficient manner possible. By embracing innovation and change, Ulster County has been able to balance fiscal responsibility and social responsibility, and in many ways, has become a model around the State of New York.
County Executive Hein has been a champion for Ellenville Regional Hospital and its surrounding community, including lending his full support and backing to the Nevele Resort, Casino & Spa project for the Ellenville/Wawarsing area, which will be an economic engine for our region.
He has made transforming Ulster County into the healthiest county in New York State one of his administration’s goals. Hospital administration has worked closely with the Ulster County Health Department on the county-wide Community Health Plan, which was developed to address important public health challenges such as diabetes, obesity and cardiac risk factors. The County Executive advanced Anti-Tobacco legislation to protect our children. Under County Executive Hein’s leadership, the “Ulster County SPEAK” App (Suicide Prevention Education and Awareness Kit) was developed, providing a powerful tool to assist families and friends with suicide prevention efforts should such need arise.
The Gala & Silent Auction is generously sponsored by Coombe, Bender and Co., Ellenville Senior Apartments/Jonah Mandelbaum, EOS Medical Group, Gillette Creamery, Health Quest, Nevele Resort, Casino & Spa, Sprague & Killeen, Inc., Sterling National Bank, The Institute for Family Health, Travers O’keefe, Villa Veritas Foundation, and the White Wolf Restaurant and Lounge.
