Paumanok Vineyards

An estate winery established in 1983, Paumanok Vineyards is located on the North Fork of Long Island. Owned and operated by the Massoud family, Paumanok is a longtime partner of Sun River Health and has hosted many Day of Health events for local farmworkers at their winery.

From its inception, Paumanok’s focus has been to craft the highest quality wines. The Massouds’ guiding philosophy is that only the healthiest, ripest grapes will produce great wine -- there is no substitute. Paumanok produces several varietal and blended wines with fruit originating on its 80 acres of vineyards. Along with New York State’s only Chenin Blanc, Paumanok offers Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Over the years, Paumanok has been recognized with numerous accolades including wine service at the White House, NY Wine & Food Classic’s “Winery of the Year” award, “outstanding” reviews in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and a nomination for Wine Enthusiast’s “American Winery of the Year.”


Great Performances

This evening’s caterer, Great Performances, has provided your meal as well as fresh ingredients from their farm for you to recreate Dinah’s dish in your home. Sun River Health and Great Performances enjoy a long-standing relationship, which includes honoring the company’s founder and CEO, Liz Neumark, at a previous Cornucopia.

Great Performances was founded as a waitress-staffing agency with the goal of offering a flexible source of income for women in the arts. Progressive from the start, the company consistently set the pace for industry best practices. From innovative dishes and striking design to critical attention to detail and impeccable service, Great Performances weaves the elements of their mission into all that they do.

In 2006, Great Performance established Katchkie Farm, becoming the nation’s first caterer to own and operate an organic farm. In 2007, they created the Sylvia Center to inspire young people and their families to establish independent healthy eating habits that can lead to healthy and productive lives.


Fund-A-Need Spotlight: Accessibility

The Fund-A-Need portion of our evening provides you with the opportunity to learn more about key programs and allows you to invest in and help fund vital services for patients who rely on us for their health care.

This year, we are spotlighting four important areas that highlight our efforts to make health care accessible to all who turn to us for care. Access to complete, quality health care services is critical for promoting and maintaining health, preventing and managing disease, and achieving health equity for all within our communities. As we move forward in this uncertain time, your support ensures that our patients and families continue to have access to the health care and services they need and deserve.


Safe and Secure Care On Your Schedule

Telemedicine has allowed us to meet patients where they are, offer extended service hours, and provide excellent care and increased access in a safe, secure way for everyone. Since March 24, nearly 200 Sun River doctors and medical practitioners have provided tens of thousands of telemedicine visits to individuals throughout the communities we serve.

Mobile Health Centers

Meeting Our Patients’ Needs, No Matter Where They Are

We currently have three mobile health centers - based in the Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island - that provide convenient care to those who cannot come into a health center due to their housing situation, lack of access to transportation, or other issues that may hinder their access to care. Visiting farms, vineyards, homeless shelters, churches and partner community organizations, these Mobile Health Centers bring our high-quality care outside the four walls of our health centers directly to those who need it most.

Farmworker Outreach

Overcoming Barriers To Care With On-Site Resources

Day in and day out, outreach workers across our network connect our communities to the care we provide. Of particular note is the Days of Health program, during which we bring medical care as well as information about our services to farms and vineyards where workers might have barriers to care, such as transportation. Agricultural workers are one of our state’s most chronically underserved populations, while agriculture is one of the state’s largest industries. Agricultural workers and their families often struggle to gain access to quality health care, and often suffer from poor nutrition, asthma, musculo-skeletal conditions, and a lack of preventive care and dental services.

COVID-19 Pop-up Testing Sites

Convenient Testing When It Was Most Needed

We were proud to partner with several community organizations to offer 14 pop-up COVID-19 testing sites throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island. Providing more than 15,000 COVID-19 tests for patients since March, pop-up testing was mobilized quickly to fulfill the need for safe testing. Nine of these pop-up testing sites were in Suffolk County to accommodate the lack of accessibility to testing, especially for those on the East End of Long Island. Through these pop-up testing sites, many new patients were referred for follow-up care to one of our health centers.

In the early 1970s, four African American women looked out at their community and witnessed a lack of affordable, quality health care. They decided to do something about it. With seed money from a small federal grant, the first Hudson River Health Care center was born in 1975.

Hudson River Health Care and Brightpoint Health have merged and are now one organization with a brand new name:


Just as the sun and water are essential for life, people in our communities can count on Sun River Health to access the high-quality, affordable care they need to be well and live a full, healthy life.

Today, we celebrate what was once a single community health center, and is now a network of 43 health centers, serving more than 245,000 patients throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island.

Caring for Our Communities Since 1975, and Now Stronger Than Ever
