Saratoga Hospital Receiving $278,500 Gift from Millennium Medical Imaging
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY, August 31, 2018—Millennium Medical Imaging, a specialty physician practice, recently pledged a charitable gift of $278,500 to support Saratoga Hospital’s Cardiovascular Interventional Suite expansion as well as multiyear sponsorships of the hospital’s signature events.
“Millennium has been a staunch supporter, contributing to nearly every capital campaign in the last eight years,” said Angelo G. Calbone, president and CEO of Saratoga Hospital. “They have proven to be great partners, both clinically and philanthropically. When physicians support hospital priorities – that makes a big difference to donors in the community.”
Millennium has been Saratoga Hospital’s medical imaging provider since 2000 and was instrumental in launching the hospital’s varicose vein program and recruiting interventional oncologists to expand cancer services. The practice also advises the hospital on technology purchases and, with hospital staff, helps train radiology student-interns.
“We view this as another way to collaborate with the hospital for the good of our patients and the community we serve,” said radiologist Philip Fear, MD, president of Millennium Medical Imaging and chair of Saratoga Hospital’s Medical Imaging Department. “These campaigns and events have a positive impact on our patients, and that’s important to us.”
The pledge includes $170,000 for renovations that have created a second state-of-the-art interventional lab, new pre-and post-procedure space, as well as registration, waiting and staff areas.
The remaining $108,500 will support multiyear sponsorships of the hospital’s signature events, including the Cantina Kids Fun Run earlier this summer to support children’s healthcare; The 36th Annual Gala on August 1 to benefit Saratoga Community Health Center; and the Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational set for September 12 to support the Nursing Scholarship Program.
