    WARWICK-The Provident Bank Charitable Foundation has contributed $30,000 to St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick to help renovate and expand the hospital's emergency room. The renovations, a project that will total $9.5 million, will provide an eight-bay Emergency Department with central station monitoring. Currently, the emergency room features only five bays, no storage areas and no private consultation room. "We are proud to support St. Anthony Community Hospital in this important organizational endeavor," said Robert Sansky, Executive Vice President, President of the Northern Region for Provident Bank. "Our bank realizes the importance of the Emergency Department to both the community and the hospital and we look forward to the increased capabilities the renovations will bring to the department." The 73-bed hospital shares a 26-acre campus with Mount Alverno Center, an 85 resident adult home and assisted living facility, and Schervier Pavilion, a 120 resident skilled nursing facility. St. Anthony Community Hospital serves more than 55,000 residents of southern Orange County in New York and northern Sussex and Passaic counties in New Jersey and offers services and programs that are unique to the region. "Our Emergency Department has been stretched very thin in recent times and we are grateful to the Provident Bank Charitable Foundation for lending its support," said Leah Cerkvenik, executive vice president/site administrator at St. Anthony Community Hospital. "The Provident Bank Charitable Foundation's investment in the Emergency Department will enable us to better serve the community."
