Health care is a major strength in the Greater Binghamton area, with two major hospital systems. Both provide primary care clinics, physician networks, wellness programs, and home health care/long term care alternatives.
Lourdes Hospital is a 277-bed hospital in Binghamton. It is a member of Ascension Healthcare. A Catholic institution, Lourdes Hospital has provided compassionate care to those in need since 1925. The main hospital campus includes a Hospice program, an Ambulatory Surgery Center, and a Regional Cancer Center. Reaching beyond these boundaries, Lourdes has established a network of primary care physicians at convenient sites throughout the region.
The “Mission In Motion” program, which provides primary care and cancer screening services through two mobile medical vans, makes health care accessible to rural populations.
