HOLYOKE — Mont Marie, a member of the Marquis Health Services/Tryko Partners skilled-nursing portfolio, has made a contribution toward the Holyoke Medical Center capital campaign — titled Care. Community. Commitment. — for the new Emergency Department and Medical Office Building.
“Strong partnerships with local medical providers are integral to a skilled-nursing facility’s ability to provide the best possible care, programs, and customer service for residents. We value the close working relationship we have developed with Holyoke Medical Center in the three years we have owned and operated Mont Marie Health Care Center,” said Norman Rokeach, CEO of Marquis Health Services, the healthcare affiliate of Tryko Partners, LLC. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the hospital and its team as we develop specialized programming that meets the needs of the Holyoke community.”
Added Spiros Hatiras, president and CEO of Holyoke Medical Center and Valley Health Systems, “we are proud of the partnership the hospital has been able to establish with Mont Marie and Marquis Health Services, and greatly appreciate this financial contribution. It is collaborations such as those established with Mont Marie that allow us to continue to provide our community with the services it deserves.”
The new Emergency Department, which opened in July 2017, is a 21,460-square-foot facility featuring a Center for Behavioral Health Emergency Service, 40 treatment areas, multi-patient trauma rooms, advanced life-saving equipment, and a patient-navigation service. In the first six months of operation, the new facility has treated more than 26,000 patients.
The Care. Community. Commitment. capital campaign at Holyoke Medical Center is still underway and inching closer to its $3 million goal. Anyone interested in learning more about the campaign and ways to get involved is invited to call the hospital’s Development Department at (413) 534-2579.
