Advancing Excellence

National Recognition for Local Service & Investment

This past Friday, St. Joseph’s was informed it had made the list of “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker's Hospital Review. You can see the article and listing here.

It appears that Becker’s learned of our work in the community to care for Medicaid and under- served residents. We have, in fact, engaged our community in many new ways over the last several years.

We partnered with Centerstate CEO and Catholic Charities to create the Northside Urban Partnership. If we look around the neighborhood, we can see signs of progress all around us.
New apartments, homes, and a new Kinney Drugs are examples of some of the exciting projects that St. Joseph’s has been the catalyst behind. We have more to do, but the investments being made by developers are a very positive sign of a revitalized neighborhood. The historic Otisca Building, site of a brewery for many decades, shortly before its demolition in May.

Collaboration has also occurred for job training programs, housing redevelopment, and a greener environment.

The investment we have made in health care outreach and expansion in Syracuse is also very evident and includes St. Joseph's Westside Family Health Center. In addition, we’ve added Nurse Practitioner services to our Mental Health Center, and expanded care services in Baldwinsville, Cazenovia, and our main campus in the Family Medicine Center.

St. Joseph's physicians at our North Medical and Northeast Medical sites have also expanded access.

It is a remarkable story that we sometimes take for granted. We understood a long time ago that health care would require more community engagement, and we planned and moved forward preparing our system.

On behalf of our staff, physicians and leadership, thank you to Becker's for recognizing our accomplishments! And a special thanks to our Partners: Centerstate CEO, Catholic Charities, The Northside Urban Partnership, Home Headquarters and Housing Visions for making this recognition possible.
