    They could have selected any apple orchard in the Northeast, but the Boston Beer Company chose to locate the new research and development center for their Angry Orchard hard cider line right here in the heart of Orange County. Angry Orchard’s 15,000 square foot R&D hub and tasting center is nestled in the middle of the Crist Apple Orchard in Walden, NY, a site that has served as one of the county’s hundreds of working farms since the mid-1700s. Angry Orchard, the nation’s #1 hard cider label, expects 50,000 tourists to visit the tasting center each year, bringing visitors from all over the valley and beyond to taste their favorite flavors– along with a few experimental varietals – and to experience the rich culture and sheer beauty of Orange County.

    When Orange County became the proud home of the first new medical center built in NYS in more than 25 years, the county was left with the challenge of re-purposing two old hospitals. The former Horton Hospital in the City of Middletown became the focus of the future Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. A diverse team of leaders had the vision, desire and where with-all to identify the right project at the right location at the right time. A college president, a city mayor, a developer and a director of medical education, recognized the positive impacts to our local economy, the educational opportunities and the enhanced delivery of healthcare services - that the opening of a medical college would provide. Developer Tony Danza stated, “The impact that Touro College will have on the county and region is tremendous. Over the next 10 years it will be a center of excellence in education.” Orange Regional Medical Center President and CEO Scott Batulis announced: “Even before the medical school opens in 2014, new educational opportunities are being woven into the fabric of the Orange Regional Medical Center.” This summer, a dozen medical students from Touro’s New York City Harlem campus started their core clerkships and, early next year, a family practice program will be launched. Starting in 2016, graduates of the Middletown campus will begin residencies at Orange Regional Medical Center. For the first time in Orange County’s history, specialists and primary care givers are receiving their education in our own backyard. With the opening of a Touro College campus in the City of Middletown, our county and region will benefit from a dramatically increased number of doctors who train and remain in the Hudson Valley. “We’re excited about the economic impact and benefits that Touro will bring to our city. City of Middletown Mayor Joe DeStefano announced, “Touro’s strong community outreach has already proven them to be a great neighbor. This economic engine will create more than 1,000 new jobs.” Dr. Ron Israelski, who’s vision germinated the idea and launched its success…. proudly boasted, “This project will make Orange County more healthy, wealthy and wise.” At its 2013 Annual Event, the Orange County Partnership presented Touro College with its Quality of Life Award for its excellence in leadership involving enhancement of life in Orange County.
