Donations Making a Donation HIV Treatment Fund The Strong Memorial Hospital (SMH) HIV Treatment Fund (HTF) was developed to assist with medical expenses of SMH AIDS Center patients. The AIDS Center is a treatment facility designated by the AIDS Institute of the New York State Department of Health. SMH AIDS Center patients may request funds for health care related issues, psychosocial/ therapeutic needs or quality of life expenses through their AIDS Center social worker. The social worker will document financial need and will assure that all other resources have been explored and utilized. Requests are submitted to the HTF Committee which consists of AIDS Center medical providers, social workers, and administrative and clerical staff. Committee decisions will be communicated to appropriate parties. The fund will not be used to cover any administrative or overhead costs. HTF is supported entirely by donations and fundraising events in the community. If you are interested in donating to HTF please call (585) 275-0526.
