In 2002, Arden Hill Hospital in Goshen and Horton Medical Center, in Middletown, merged to become Orange Regional Medical Center. This year, Orange Regional will consolidate the two existing campuses onto a single site in the Town of Wallkill, New York. Our vision has been realized as we took the best of both campuses and created the most patient-friendly, efficient and technologically-advanced hospital.
Orange Regional’s focus has been on consolidating existing resources and eliminating duplicate services to improve the quality of healthcare for Hudson Valley residents.
Our region is facing a population increase of 17 percent from 2000 through 2013 with the highest growth occurring in two groups – the elderly and baby boomers. While the baby boomers are among the fastest growing population, they are also comprised of individuals with the most knowledge regarding health issues and individuals who expect quality healthcare in convenient and accessible locations, close to their homes.
To meet these demands, Orange Regional has built a new hospital campus – the first construction of its kind in the State of New York in more than 20 years with a total project cost of more than $350 million.
Visitors of the new hospital will enter through the Alan and Sandra Gerry Building, a beautifully decorated lobby with an open design and a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming setting. The seven-floor, 600,000-plus-square-foot medical center is situated on 61 acres on East Main Street near the Route 17 and Interstate-84 interchange.
Orange Regional’s new hospital will reduce the need for patients to seek treatment outside of the region. This new facility will support Orange Regional’s mission as a not-for-profit hospital, and will guarantee care to its patients regardless of their ability to pay.
