Times Herald-Record, August 5, 2011

The opening of Orange Regional Medical Center's new hospital, set for today in the Town of Wallkill doesn't just mean a shiny new building. It's already bringing new businesses to the area, and it's likely to bring more as time goes on. It's not just that the hospital employs some 2,500 people. It's the medical services that will open nearby to cater to patients. It's also the lunches hospital employees and visitors might grab in the neighborhood, the tank of gas they will buy at the Quick Chek that opened recently down the street, or the trip to the mall after work because it's now just about two miles away. "I think what you'll see along East Main Street is a whole corridor of medical services developing there," said Orange Regional President/CEO Scott Batulis. "In addition to the new gas station, you will see other doctors who will be looking to move to the area once their leases are up."
