MONTOUR FALLS –– At their Annual Community Meeting, Schuyler Hospital named Ken Wilson their Community Partner of the Year. The Community Partner Award is presented annually to an organization or individual as recognition for helping Schuyler Hospital achieve its mission.

Wilson served as Executive Director of the Schuyler Health Foundation from 2006-2008, when he returned to banking – a career he only recently retired from – so he could “give people money instead of asking them for it.” He is currently serving as a volunteer on the Schuyler Health Foundation Board. A long-term donor to the Schuyler Health Foundation, Wilson co-chaired the most successful Family of Friends campaign in 2011, raising $300,000 for Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility – a place he is passionate about.

According to Jim Watson, CEO/President of Schuyler Hospital, Wilson “continues to be one of our strongest supporters in the community, and also our eyes and ears – he will make us aware of any concerns we may need to address. He is truly someone who continues to help us achieve our mission in the community.”

Named to the prestigious Schuyler County Hall of Fame, Wilson volunteers for various community organizations – including, over time, Watkins-Montour Rotary, Friends of the Watkins Library, SCOPED, Watkins Glen International Advisory Board, Schuyler County Chamber of Commerce, Schuyler County United Way and the Watkins
Glen First Presbyterian Church.

Wilson has been called “the Go-To Person in the county,” a man who has devoted himself to many causes over the years that were designed to improve life in
Schuyler County.” The 2015 award went to Arcangeli Farm, and 2016 to the Schuyler Hospital Auxiliary.
