Scott Bonderoff, President at O’Connor Hospital started the half mile stroll with a ribbon cutting on the newly completed fitness trail. Joining Scott, on a stroll, were hospital board members, employees, & fitness trail sponsors.

    The trail, just a half mile in length, now features six fitness stations, two picnic tables, benches, and bird houses.  The trail is the result of a multiple year collaborative project. Funding for the trail came from; O’Connor Hospital’s capital as approved by the Board of Trustees, a grant from the Delaware County Rural Health Alliance facilitated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County, as well as gifts from local businesses, employees and individuals. The trail itself was constructed by Delaware Bulldozing and the O’Connor Hospital maintenance staff.  Lastly, the fitness stations were designed by Bob Giambalvo, Physical Therapy Assistant in the rehabilitation department at O’Connor Hospital.

     O’Connor Hospital Community Fitness Trail is now open to all community members. The trail is easily accessible from either the large main parking lot back from the main hospital entrance or from the small parking lot behind the Flint Building. Currently, the trail is open all four seasons and most hours of the day, seven days a week. Enjoy!
