Holyoke Medical Center
William G. Morgan Award 2005
From its beginnings as a small community hospital in 1893 to its present status as one of the preeminent medical facilities in the region, Holyoke Medical Center has remained dedicated to progress.
Located on a 15-acre campus, easily accessible to all major highways, the medical center has approximately 1,100 employees. It serves an aggregate population of 180,000 in cities and towns which include, Chicopee, South Hadley, Granby, Easthampton, Southampton, West Springfield and Belchertown.
A full service facility, Holyoke Medical Center offers a complete line of medical/surgical services, including Emergency, Critical Care and an ultra-modern Birthing Center. In recent years, Holyoke Medical Center has significantly expanded, and in 2004 completed its $11.1 million addition and renovation program. The 33,000-square foot project was one of the largest in the
history of the 108-year-old facility.
A subsidiary of Valley Health Systems, Holyoke Medical Center is an affiliate of the UMass Memorial Medical Center.
The partnership between Holyoke Medical Center and the Volleyball Hall of Fame extends back to the earliest days of the Hall. HMC has provided major sponsorships for years of Morgan Classic Tournaments and Induction Celebrations, enabling teams from across the country and guests from around the world to participate in these events and to have a well appreciated Welcoming Luncheon. HMC has always been
willing to lend a hand with resources and volunteers to help us in
staging first-class events. In 2004 HMC President Hank Porten served
as our Induction Honorary Chairperson.
As we proceed into the new millennium, our partnership promises to continue providing information, programs, and tournaments that bring the excitement and thrill of the sport to every corner of the country.
We welcome Holyoke Medical Center into the Volleyball Hall of Fame as the 2005 recipient of the William G. Morgan Award.
