CEO Update
Cheers, To 25 Years!
This coming week marks Southern Tier Health Care System’s 25th anniversary! In 1994, STHCS was established as one of the first four rural health networks in New York State. We’ve built numerous successful programs in the years since to overcome barriers to health and wellness in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties. In recent years, we have begun supporting statewide health care efforts, some with the potential for a national impact. Our programs today include support for caregivers, compassionate treatment for survivors of sexual assault, coordination of regional EMS agencies, safe cribs for infants in need, opioid overdose-prevention efforts, health insurance navigation, and many different kinds of trainings to keep our communities healthy and safe.
 
On this Silver Anniversary, I’d like to thank our Board of Directors, community stakeholders and other supporters, without whom our rural health mission would lack guidance and vision. Here’s to another quarter-century! As our motto goes: “We’re better together.”
Stop the Bleed Golf Tournament
I’m pleased to report that our grant writer, Kelsey Boudin, recently hosted a golf tournament that raised $1,250 for our local Stop the Bleed program. The tournament was held at St. Bonaventure Golf Course on Saturday, July 6th. It drew a full field of amateur golfers, hole sponsors, donors and other supporters. STHCS administers this program, which provides training and equipment to stop life-threatening bleeding emergencies, with training assistance from Mercy Flight of WNY.
 
The tournament was originally supposed to be just a small scramble amongst friends. It quickly gained interest and became something bigger than Kelsey expected. As a side benefit, the event helped to bring great community visibility to this lifesaving program. That's a great first-year effort. I’m happy he’s already talking about making next year’s tournament even bigger and better!
