About The Foundation

Established in 1985, Montefiore Nyack Hospital Foundation’s mission is to build enduring community relationships that promote and financially support Montefiore Nyack’s comprehensive state-of-the-art medical care, exceptional programs, and outstanding patient experiences.

Guided by our incredible Board of Directors, Montefiore Nyack Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Hospital. Established in 1985, the Foundation is dedicated to building meaningful relationships between Hospital and the community, while also seeking philanthropic dollars that help Montefiore Nyack achieve and maintain the highest level of care for the patients and community members who count on us as their community hospital.

Montefiore Nyack is a 391-bed acute care medical and surgical hospital serving Rockland County and the lower Hudson Valley region. 2020 marked the Hospital’s 125th Anniversary of meeting the critical needs of people in the community. What started as a two-story house with nine beds, operating room, nurse’s parlor, reception area and dining room has today become a major regional medical center.
