2018: A Year of Accomplishments

By: Crouse News

Last year was a busy one for Crouse Health, marked by new partnerships, including affiliations with three North Country hospitals: Carthage Area Hospital, Claxton-Hepburn Hospital and River Hospital.

As part of the Crouse Health System, Crouse Medical Practice continued its growth this year, increasing access to clinical services with the addition of 16 new providers for primary and specialty care.

We completed the final phase of the $38 million dollar Pomeroy Emergency Services Department, which officially opened in October. Crouse now has the region’s newest ER, including one convenient access and evaluation point for rapid, high-quality care delivered by the area’s premier ER team.

We continued to build on our culture of diversity and inclusion across the organization. More than 400 employees completed D&I orientation and numerous programs planned by the D&I Committee helped expand our awareness and appreciation of different cultures, viewpoints and perspectives.

Maintaining a sharp focus on our mission to provide the best in patient care, we were proud to have earned national recognition of our cardiac and stroke care quality. We also became a nationally designated Comprehensive Stroke Center, one of only 12 in New York State, reflecting our commitment and investment in providing the most advanced neuroscience and complex stroke care.

As we begin 2019, we will continue our focus on keeping Crouse strong. Planning for a new, expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will continue, with the goal of starting construction in 2020.
