POTSDAM, NY – Kinney Drugs Foundation has made a $200,000 commitment to the Great Care, Right Here Fundraising Campaign to support the construction of the St. Lawrence Health (SLH) Regional Care Pavilion and other vital initiatives at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

The Great Care, Right Here Fundraising Campaign goal is to raise funds from government sources, individuals, private foundations, and vendors to help support the construction of the Regional Care Pavilion, and advance workforce development through education for our clinicians who are at the very heart of our organization.

“The Kinney Drugs Foundation is very pleased to support St. Lawrence Health and its Great Care, Right Here campaign,” shared Kinney Drugs Foundation President. “The Pavilion’s new facilities and services will undoubtedly improve the level of care for residents in Canton, Potsdam, and the surrounding communities we both serve.”

SLH President Donna McGregor has championed the Regional Care Pavilion as an important and valuable investment that will increase access to high-quality emergency, obstetric, and inpatient care for St. Lawrence County residents.

“Building a healthy community requires more than just hospitals and doctors. It requires teamwork and partnership from those we serve, and we are grateful for this significant commitment from the Kinney Drugs Foundation,” Ms. McGregor said.

Great Care, Right Here Campaign Chair Jacquie Kuno commented, “This is a project that will go on for generations, and what we're doing today is really laying the groundwork for healthcare in the future for the North Country.”
