Merger Date With Cornerstone Set for March 1

Late last fall, we received word from the New York State Attorney General’s office that our plan to merge with Cornerstone Family Healthcare was approved, without any comments or requested changes to the plan. We have set a merger date of March 1, 2021 for the official merger.

What This Means For Clients:

Clients of HVCS should not see or feel any difference in services once we merge. All services and programs are staying intact and operational. Clients’ case managers and contacts will all remain the same. Our website, phone numbers and email addresses will also be the same, and our physical offices will remain where they are and open the same hours.

The changes for clients are all positive: we will be able to provide clients with more services via direct and active referrals to Cornerstone’s medical, dental, OBGYN, behavioral health and mental health programs. Clients will be able to see medical staff via telemedicine appointments, either from their home or from our offices.*

We have a handy FAQ guide for clients on our website, in English and Spanish.

What This Means For Supporters:

The Hudson Valley Community Services brand will continue, like our website. Our food and toiletry closets, client emergency funds, and fundraising programs will carry on as well. (We hope to bring back some of our fundraising events, too, once the Covid-19 pandemic has eased.) Donations made to HVCS will still be applied to HVCS programs.

Cornerstone Family HealthcareWhat Is Cornerstone?

Cornerstone Family Healthcare (CFH) is a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center with a mission to provide high quality, comprehensive, primary and preventative health care services in an environment of caring, dignity and respect to all people regardless of their ability to pay. For more than fifty years, Cornerstone has been responsive to meeting the needs of the communities they serve with a continued emphasis on the under-served and those without access to health care–regardless of race, economic status, age, sex, sexual orientation or disability.

Since Cornerstone is also a non-profit, you can choose, in the future, to donate to the entire organization and help even more people access the healthcare they need. Cornerstone serves more than 40,000 people each year!
