PHOTO CAPTION: “Our community hospital returns our investment over and over again—it grows as we grow,” said William Schweighofer, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The Honesdale National Bank (HNB) as he presented a check to Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Health Foundation for $66,667. The check represented an installment on HNB’s three year pledge of $166,667 to Wayne Memorial’s capital campaign, Operation Vital Signs (OVS). Wayne Memorial’s CEO David Hoff thanked Schweighofer and HNB’s Board of Directors. He added that OVS has already helped fund major capital expansion projects at the Honesdale hospital, including a new Emergency Department, an inpatient rehabilitation unit, a private women’s imaging center and the purchase of a new state-of-the-art 64-slice CT scan. None of this would have been possible without the support of local financial institutions who collectively pledged $500,000 to the Hospital’s first capital campaign since 1981. “Operation Vital Signs was a compelling cause right from the start,” Schweighofer continued, “and it still is.” HNB, headquartered in Honesdale, has seven full service offices in Wayne, Pike, Susquehanna and Lackawanna Counties, a full service Trust Department and Investment Center and operates the HNB Mortgage Center, located in Luzerne County – location of HNB’s next branch now under construction.
