MONTOUR FALLS, N.Y. — The Schuyler Health Foundation, whose mission is to raises funds to support Schuyler Hospital and its Seneca View skilled-nursing facility, recently announced it has appointed Trevor Carey and Laurie DeNardo to its board of directors.
Carey is the pharmacy manager at CVS in Watkins Glen. He was born and raised in Montour Falls and is a 2010 graduate of Odessa-Montour Central School District. He went on to receive his Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2016.
DeNardo is the human-resources director for the College of Agricultural Sciences at Cornell University. She was born and raised in Watkins Glen and attended Empire State College and Cornell, studying finance and human resources. DeNardo has worked at Cornell for 40-plus years. She also serves as an elected village trustee in Watkins Glen.
Carey and DeNardo joined the Schuyler Health Foundation board this summer. Board terms run for three years, and each director can serve up to three terms on the board, the foundation said.
Since 1987, the Schuyler Health Foundation has provided funds to Schuyler Hospital and its related medical facilities, including the Seneca View skilled-nursing facility, through major gifts and fundraising events. The foundation said it has a strong focus on community integration.
Schuyler Hospital, which is a unit of Ithaca–based Cayuga Health, is a 16-bed critical-access hospital, with a 120-bed skilled-nursing facility attached. Schuyler Hospital’s main campus — overlooking Seneca Lake — is located in Montour Falls. It has grown into a network of providers, programs, and services that reaches throughout Schuyler County and into neighboring counties to meet the health-care needs of a population of more than 32,000 residents.
