Campaign Leadership

"Both St. Mary’s and Samaritan hospitals were founded on a culture of philanthropy – the community coming together and raising money to build the hospitals, advance the innovation in these institutions and care for their needy and infirm neighbors. Today we stand at another defining moment in the history of health care in Troy. We cannot survive in today’s healthcare environment as we are presently configured and once again look to our community to support this important project. The ultimate success of Transforming Health Care in Troy… The Campaign for Samaritan and St. Mary’s Hospitals will depend upon your generous philanthropic investment in creating the future of health care in our region."
