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 1,200 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.
Our Mission Statement
We will deliver the highest quality health care in partnership with our community, one person at a time.
Our Core Values
We value our ability to provide the very best results to our patients, right here in our community. We partner with Centers of Excellence and participate in national bench-marking studies.
We value customer service, as we take care of our patients and their families, in our relationships with our doctors, and in our interactions with colleagues. We monitor customer service through a relationship with external customer satisfaction auditor, Press Ganey.
We value each other as colleagues and mentors, and we value our patients, neighbors, friends, and community partners
We value fiscal integrity while striving to meet community needs through investments in state-of-the-art equipment, renovations to our facilities, and development of new programs and services. We have been operating in the black since 1981, and were recently recognized by the Consumer Value Index as a Top 100 Hospital for the value we contribute to the community.
We value our partners in the local health community, spanning the spectrum of care from acupuncture to wellness, from prevention to palliation, and from acute care to life care.
