Middletown, N.Y. – November 3rd, 2016 – On Tuesday, November 1st, Crystal Run Healthcare was joined by United States Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, New York State Senators John J. Bonacic and William J. Larkin, Jr., New York State Assemblyman Karl Brabenec, Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus, Village of Monroe Mayor James C. Purcell and Ryan J. McLeod, Deputy Director, Mid-Hudson for Empire State Development representing NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo for a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the official grand opening of its brand-new, two-story, 70,000 square foot medical office that opened in Monroe.  Over 200 guests were present at the event, including representatives from area businesses, hospitals, Orange County residents, local dignitaries, and Crystal Run Healthcare physicians and staff.

“The approach they are taking here – believing that there is a path forward where we can have better health, better care, and lower costs – that is the big gain.  The answer to so much of what we need to do in health care is going on right here.  This is not just a great example of a local investment that’s going to create jobs, though it is.  It’s that Crystal Run is pioneering the path forward in health care in the United States.  Today is one more step forward on that journey,” said Untied States Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney.
“Congratulations to the entire organization for bringing quality health care to southern Orange County,” explained New York State Senator John J. Bonacic. “What is important to me is the reputation we are getting in the Mid-Hudson region for quality, cutting edge health care for all.  Dr. Teitelbaum and his organization are bringing all of these good providers to the region and that benefits us.  Along with quality health care, this project is an economic catalyst for southern Orange County, for job creation – and that’s equally important.”
“This organization has one mission – the health of our community.  And nothing else is as important as that,” said New York State Senator William J. Larkin, Jr. “We have a leader in health care who knows what has to be done, knows how it’s going to be done, and makes sure that everybody has access to it.”

“What Crystal Run has done for this community and what it will do for Monroe and for Orange County, bringing hundreds of construction jobs here, more jobs in the health care industry, doctors, nurses – it’s absolutely a fantastic thing and it creates a great deal of opportunity for our residents which is what we like to see,” said New York State Assemblyman Karl Brabenec.

“Three years ago, Orange County government had more employees than Crystal Run.  And today, I am proud to say that Crystal Run has now surpassed us – we’ve gone down through early retirements, not lay-offs, and they’ve gone up by private investments,” mentioned Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus. “That’s what you want to see in a society – when the private sector is outpacing the public sector.  Thank you to Crystal Run for investing in this county – continue to grow.”
“Dr. Hal Teitelbaum isn’t just committed to the medical world and everyone being happy and healthy – he’s committed to his vision and the future of our communities, developing in areas that need this type of health care.  And the Village of Monroe is fortunate that we are the beneficiaries of this vision,” explained Village of Monroe Mayor James C. Purcell.

“When I speak to our new employees in orientation each month, I tell them we are in the quality of life business – that’s what we do.  If we are not improving quality of life, why do we exist?” asked Managing Partner and CEO of Crystal Run Healthcare, Hal Teitelbaum, MD, JD, MBA.  “When I first started my medical practice I was focused on how to make life better for my patients.  At some point I realized that we had hit an impasse – we had to decrease fragmentation, employ best practices, and apply all of the science we know to make medical practice better.  As a result, we established Crystal Run Healthcare, a group where we practice the science of medicine together, share information, and coordinate care.  What we’re doing here is to make health care better in order to improve health and lower costs. We can do it and working together, we will do it.  Turning back the clock as some want to do may be change—but it’s not progress. We need to move forward.  We need to do more.”
