Donations for William F. Thiel Hospitality House
Letter from our CEO:
You may or may not be are aware of the important role that the Western New York Rural Area Health Education Center, Inc. plays in helping to improve health and healthcare through education in our rural communities. One of the ways we achieve are mission is by operating the William F. Thiel Hospitality House located behind the Wyoming County Community Hospital (WCCH) in Warsaw. Our house primarily supports three types of guests: health profession students serving rotations at the hospital or another nearby preceptorship, health professionals providing services at WCCH (on-call, visiting physicians) needing temporary housing, and families of loved ones in crisis at WCCH or another nearby facility. Since 2005, the William F. Thiel Hospitality House has served hundreds of guests. This important facility is largely supported by guest fees and by the support of donors. At this point we do not charge families that stay in the facility who have a loved in facing a healthcare crisis.
Recently, our Board of Directors, approved a Feasibility Study which calls for a renovation of the Hospitality House to better suit the needs of our guests and expand our occupancy capabilities. This renovation and remodeling project will allow us to provide more housing opportunities when the needs arise. Currently, we are often having to turn guests away due to limited availability. That is why this year we are asking for your support in helping to make this renovation a possibility. Our goal is to raise $10,000 from community donors which will go directly to support the renovations of the William F. Thiel Hospitality House in 2018. Your generous donation to the Western New York Rural Area Health Education Center, Inc. will allow us to continue providing much needed services to those in our community, particularly the guests whose families are experiencing a medical crisis.
