The Center Is You
Welcome to Cayuga Medical Center at Ithaca.
At Cayuga Medical Center, we believe that hospitals are shaped by the people they serve. A hundred years ago, a group of forward-thinking community leaders opened a small city hospital with fifteen beds. Today, Cayuga Medical Center houses 204 beds, employs over 1,200 health-care professionals, and has a medical staff of more than 200 affiliated physicians.
Over the past century we have evolved into a comprehensive medical center and we continue to offer, as we always have, attentive and compassionate care to each patient who comes through our doors. Our patients and families are at the center of everything we do.
We are a not-for-profit, acute-care medical center bringing state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services to the residents of Tompkins, Cortland, Seneca, and Tioga counties. And a century after our founding, we remain intrinsically tied to those we serve: our corporate membership includes representatives from over 100 community organizations.
We are privileged to engage with you, our community, as we chart our course for the future. We... work every day to help you meet your changing health-care needs. As a result more than 150,000 area residents and visitors choose us each year for top-quality, specialized health-care, rather than traveling outside of the area.
Thank you for choosing Cayuga Medical Center.
