Our Community

Committed to caring for, and being an active part of our surrounding community

At Ellenville Regional Hospital, one of our guiding principles is to be a good neighbor. Our primary mission as a Critical Access Hospital is to provide exceptional healthcare, but but we go way beyond that. With our continuing and innovative new initiatives, we take steps to keep our neighbors healthier with programs such as:

Sharps Container and Medication Collection

Syringes, needles and lancets used for managing serious health conditions can be safely disposed of through Ellenville Regional Hospital’s participation in the Ulster County Sharps Program. We collect used sharps and unused medication on specific dates, designated by Ulster County. The sharps must be in appropriate puncture-proof containers. We also distribute FREE sharps containers to replace the used ones we accept.

Medication will be dropped directly into our medication drop box.
