Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative has committed $11,000 to Guthrie’s Forward Together comprehensive campaign, an initiative designed to ensure Guthrie continues to thrive during a time of rapidly changing health care delivery.
In addition to a $1,000 check Claverack representatives presented to health system officials at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre recently, the cooperative has pledged to invest an additional $10,000 in the Forward Together campaign over the next 5 years.
Funds raised through the capital campaign will be used to expand and renovate Guthrie’s emergency department and cardiovascular center, invest in state-of-the art medical technologies and expand the regional health care provider’s residency and fellowship programs for physicians in an effort to attract new clinicians to the Twin Tiers.
“We know how important Guthrie is to the health care needs of the people in our region, and we are very pleased to be able to support the health system’s campaign to expand and enhance its services and facilities,” said Bobbi Kilmer, Claverack president and chief executive officer.
“Thank you to Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative for supporting the Forward Together Campaign at Guthrie,” said Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, Guthrie President and CEO. “Guthrie is proud to provide excellent care in the communities we serve, and we look forward to putting this generous donation to work to grow and expand Guthrie programs that benefit patients every day.”
