Champlain National Bank gifts $10K to Adirondack Health Foundation

In a show of support for one of the area’s largest hospitals, Champlain National Bank has pledged $10,000 to the Adirondack Health Foundation’s Future of Care campaign.

“Being the local bank in the Tri-Lakes, we feel it is important to support the healthcare system that takes care of our clients, our community, and us,” President and CEO Steven Cacchio said.

Champlain National Bank was founded in 1909 in Essex County and is still locally owned and managed today, and committed to the people living in the Adirondacks.

It has branches located in Lake Placid, Keene, Elizabethtown, Westport, Willsboro, Crown Point, Plattsburgh, and Champlain, and has a full offering of mortgages, commercial loans, and mobile banking products.

“Thanks to Champlain National Bank’s generous commitment to The Future of Care campaign we are one step closer to achieving our campaign goal,” said W. Scott McGraw, chairman of the Adirondack Health Foundation board of trustees. “The Future of Care campaign has been so successful in the community because of our shared mission to build upon the region’s legacy of healing. As we continue to make strides towards our goal, now is not the time to pause. Each of us has the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in support of high-quality care for the next generation of Adirondack region residents and visitors.”

Adirondack Health announced last year a major capital improvement project to build a modern surgical services department in Saranac Lake and a new Health and Medical Fitness building in Lake Placid. The Future of Care fundraising campaign was established to support the $35 million capital improvement project. The goal for The Future of Care campaign is to raise $12 million in support of the total project cost.
