Inside Crouse

Crouse Health is Central New York’s largest provider of maternity care services, delivering more than 4,000 babies annually, and is the state-designated regional referral center for high-risk neonatal intensive care services.

Crouse also operates one of the longest-running and largest ambulatory surgery programs in the U.S. in two surgery centers near the main hospital complex. Phase 1 construction on the Witting Surgical Center, a three-floor, state-of-the-art facility, was completed in late 2010 with the opening of 14 new operating rooms. An additional four inpatient ORs came on line in February 2013, completing this $50 million project.

Other specialties include comprehensive diagnostic and interventional cardiac care (featuring the region’s only pediatric cardiac catheterization program); surgical services (including the latest advancements in robotic surgery); orthopedics; stroke care (Crouse is a NYS-designated stroke center and the first ‘Gold Plus’ stroke hospital in Syracuse); oncology; and the region’s only hospital-based chemical dependency treatment services. The hospital also operates the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing, providing critical nursing education to more than 300 students annually.

Crouse Hospital is accredited by DNV Healthcare (Det Norske Veritas) and is a member of the American Hospital Association, Healthcare Association of New York State, Greater New York State Hospital Association, the Association for Community Health Improvement and the CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity, among others.
