Dedicated to Our Community

The Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Nursing Leadership Team is actively involved in the community. In partnership with our friends at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center, we initiated the "Scholars in Scrubs" program. This educational class is offered every Saturday right here in the heart of our community in the City of Newburgh. Our nurses train students on everything from general health and wellness to the fundamentals of health care.

Margaret SpeechJust recently, the Newburgh Armory Unity Center named a portion of the building after our community hospital, with the opening of "St. Luke's North." The room includes hospital beds, surgical and first aid tools, a nurse's station and much more, all of which were donated by Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall.

In addition to this incredible program, members of the MSLC nursing team are often out in the community providing education and wellness information to the populations we serve. This includes Health Fairs, Community Lectures, as well as various screenings and prevention focused programs.2018 Nursing Magnet Fair

In the Fall of 2018, MSLC held the Nursing Magnet Fair to celebrate this incredible journey! Members of the MSLC Nursing Team as well as other departments were encouraged to learn about the many Nursing Councils including Patient Experience, Critical Care and Surgical Services by participating in fun and hands-on learning experiences!
