After two years of fundraising, the Adirondack Health Foundation has surpassed the $12 million community goal established for the Future of Care Campaign.
The Future of Care Campaign supports Adirondack Health’s $45.8 million capital improvement project, which includes the construction of a new health and medical fitness center on Old Military Road in Lake Placid and a new surgical services wing and MRI suite at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake. Between donations, grants, bequests and proceeds from special events, the comprehensive total amount raised has grown to more than $16 million.
The new Lake Placid Health and Medical Fitness Center is expected to upgrade Adirondack Health’s primary care, emergency medicine, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, dental and physical therapy/sports medicine facilities and house the region’s first medically integrated fitness center, aligning clinical guidance with targeted physical activity.
In Saranac Lake, the six new operating rooms and enhanced medical imaging capabilities are expected to enable Adirondack Health to more quickly and efficiently render surgical care.
Although the Adirondack Health Foundation has surpassed the fundraising goal established in 2016, the Future of Care Campaign will continue through the end of the year.
