Governor Cuomo Announces $181 Million to Fund Projects Generating Economic Opportunity Throughout New York State

June 02, 2015

Touro College (Orange County) – $1,000,000
Touro College, a private educational institution, will use a grant of up to $1,000,000 for a portion of the cost of renovation and construction to redevelop the former Horton Hospital Tower into a state of the art osteopathic medical school that will include an on-site clinic and student housing.

The Mid-Hudson region has long sought to stem a brain drain as highly skilled young people left the region after college, and a medical school for the area has long been discussed. When the Horton Hospital in Middletown and the Arden Hill hospital in Goshen closed in 2011, Orange County officials approached Touro College, which agreed to consider adding a medical school contingent upon financing. In 2012, the College was awarded a $1,000,000 grant through the Regional Council CFA process to close a financing gap and allow the development of the first medical school in Orange County to progress.

The College, known as TouroCOM-Middletown, began admitting students in 2014. An estimated 150 construction jobs were created during the construction phase and approximately 800 indirect full-time equivalent jobs will be created in Middletown and throughout the Mid-Hudson region as a result of the medical school at the Horton campus. The project will also provide more local access to state-of-the-art healthcare.
