Town supervisor says Copake Rapid Care Center will reopen

Oct 27, 2023 12:51 pm

Diane Valden reports in The Upstater that Columbia Memorial Health’s Copake Rapid Care Center at 283 Mountain View Road may reopen. Copake Town Supervisor Jeanne Mettler said at an Oct. 12 meeting that what was the only medical care facility in southeastern Columbia County would reopen in January. The facility has been closed for almost a year, with officials citing problems staffing the center, and financial issues. Officials in Copake, Hillsdale, Ancram, Gallatin, and Taghkanic have asked for the facility to reopen. Officials from those towns met with hospital officials that their residents would be forced to travel 30 minutes or more to Hudson, Great Barrington, MA, or Sharon, CT. And, in another development, Columbia Memorial Health spokesperson William Van Slyke said, “The CMH Foundation is now accepting donations specifically to support Copake Rapid Care services. Any donors wishing to contribute can simply indicate in the memo section of their check that the funds are for Copake Rapid Care, and anyone donating online will find a dropbox on the donation page that identifies the Copake Rapid Care Center.” Read more about this story in The Upstater.
