Flower & Fruit Mission pledges $225,000 for Mother/Baby Unit at Saratoga Hospital

Gift is announced at annual Snow Ball; event raises $30,000 for Women’s Health Services

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., Dec. 7, 2022—The Flower & Fruit Mission of Saratoga Hospital will donate $225,000 to buy new labor and delivery beds to enhance the childbirth experience at the Hospital’s Mother/Baby Unit.

Flower & Fruit Mission President Stephanie Collins announced the gift Dec. 3 at the annual Snow Ball, the organization’s signature holiday party. This year’s event netted $30,000 and honored recently retired Saratoga Hospital President and CEO Angelo Calbone for his 16 years of extraordinary service to the Hospital and the community.

The new beds will put the finishing touches on a $2.7 million unit renovation, which created a modern, comfortable birthing environment rooted in best practices for maternity care. The $225,000 is in addition to a previous Flower & Fruit Mission gift of $250,000 for the renovation.
