Cayuga Medical Center

About Cayuga Medical Center

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 1,600 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 and patient-centered 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.
