Improving the Health of our Community


Dear Friends,

Every Autumn Cornerstone Family Healthcare sets aside one special evening to honor and recognize outstanding individuals and institutions that provide the firm foundation on which our community’s health and well-being are built; the renowned Pillars of the Community Awards Gala. These Pillar honorees appreciate Cornerstone Family Healthcare’s philosophy that healthcare is a right and not a privilege. The impact on the health of the communities we serve is greatly enhanced by the level of philanthropic support we receive, made possible by the generosity of community-minded citizens who have decided to make a difference.

We would like to formally request that you support Cornerstone Family Healthcare with this important initiative. Your help matters in our continued ability to provide healthier outcomes for the over 40,000 patients who trust us to do so. This year’s proceeds will advance our commitment to improving Women’s Health Services, specifically by our investment in needed ultrasound and mammography equipment.

We value you as an advocate of our community. Your support pays tribute to the patients we serve and enables us to continue to help our families, friends and neighbors live healthy, productive lives.


Most sincerely,

Regina C. McGrade

Vice President, Development

“We are dedicated to bringing together the resources, skills, and experiences from each individual, organization, and community throughout the sites we serve so every person has access to affordable healthcare.”


  • Cornerstone Family Healthcare serves 40,000 patients annually in Orange, Rockland, Ulster and Broome Counties in New York and in Pike County, PA.
  • Cornerstone has grown from 4 sites of service in 2010 to 17 sites of service in 2018.
  • Cornerstone employs nearly 600 individuals living in communities throughout the region.
  • Cornerstone continues the fight against the ravages of opioid addiction. Our Center For Recovery is the only NYS OASAS licensed Addiction Treatment Center in Orange County to dispense methadone, an opioid analgesic, to eliminate or reduce opioid or heroin usage.
  • A Registered Dietitian and Certified Nutritionist is on staff 5 days a week and is an integral part of the patient care team. They work one-on-one with patients providing nutrition and weight loss counseling and chronic disease management.
  • Cornerstone provides wellness programs, educational health talks and support groups, chronic disease management services, health assessments, clinical screening, and health coaching by a Certified Patient Educator.
  • Proceeds from our past Pillars events have supported the purchase of two new Mobile Family Medicine Vans and a Dental Van to serve the homeless, our seniors and school children.


Cornerstone Family Healthcare is dedicated to promoting access to services that women need to stay healthy at any age. The high-quality, comprehensive primary care we provide enables us to impact the over 24,000 women annually, that make up 60% of our total patient population. In Orange County, it’s more important than ever that we are able to break down barriers to care for women.

Cornerstone is working to improve outcomes by expanding women’s health services. All of our practices offer a sliding-fee scale for uninsured and underinsured patients, ensuring that women are able to access care regardless of their insurance status. Our sites also offer ancillary services that help impact changes in women’s health, such as care management and care navigation.

Mammography has helped reduce breast cancer mortality in the U.S. by nearly 40% since 1990.

Beyond maternal health, helping women access preventive care for diseases such as breast and cervical cancers also plays a large role in our services. Cornerstone employs a care manager specifically to ensure that women receive regular cancer screenings. In 2017 we helped 658 patients discover they had abnormal results. Like all cancers, diagnosing cervical and breast cancers early is one of the best indicators of successful outcomes. By promoting screenings, alerting patients and assuring early medical intervention we make an impactful difference.

With your support, we know that by working with the community and adding the services that women need, we’re able to help move the needle on statistics in a meaningful way, all the while making headway as we strive to help women lead healthy lives uninterrupted by preventable and treatable conditions.
