Each year, the prestigious Ottaway Medal is given to a community leader who exemplifies the dedication and positive impact that the Ottaway family brought to Orange County and the Hudson Valley for several decades. In recognizing the core mission of the Orange County Citizens Foundation – community engagement, volunteerism and advocating for the public good - the medal celebrates others whose endeavors and actions are representative of that same altruism. Dr. Teitelbaum’s innovative vision and unwavering commitment to Orange County throughout the past 30 years are evident in nearly every community – from Newburgh to Monroe, to Middletown.  His contributions to these communities have improved the quality of life in Orange County and have made it a better place to live, work and play.

“This region has provided all of us here at Crystal Run with a quality of life that is second to none.  Just as it is our mission to improve the quality of life through the healthcare services we provide, we enthusiastically support the Orange County Citizens Foundation for its contributions to Orange County’s quality of life.  I thank the Orange County Citizens Foundation for this honor – I am humbled to be so recognized,” said Hal Teitelbaum, MD, JD, MBA, Managing Partner & CEO at Crystal Run Healthcare.
