2023 Friends of the Foundation
The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation will honor Dr. Lewis, Doris, Walt (posthumously), and Ruth Reisner as the 2023 Friends of the Foundation for their exemplary philanthropy and community spirit, specifically in support of the Southern Tier Health Care system. When Walt passed away in 2017, Ruth established the Walt & Ruth Reisner Endowment Fund, which provides annual distributions to both the Olean General Hospital Foundation for Obstetrics and the Southern Tier Health Care System for Emergency Medical Services in his memory. We are grateful for the Reisner family's support and congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition!
Audit Presented at Board Meeting
At our quarterly Board of Directors meeting, Ed Bysiek, CPA presented STHCS' 2022 external fiscal audit, submitting a clean opinion of our financial operations and reaffirming our strong financial position. Ed's deep understanding of our programs and his ability to convey our financial information to the board always impress me. I thank Ed and Colleen Ross, our Bookkeeper, for their work, as well as our Board members for their participation in allowing us to continue our rural health mission.
