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.

  • Grainful

    At first, we followed the traditional oat path, making tasty breakfast preparations that attracted a loyal following. Then, one evening, it happened…chef Sacco was about to cook dinner when she realized that she was out of pasta, rice, and potatoes. But she had plenty of – you guessed it – steel cut oats. Eureka! They look like rice, they cook like rice, so why not use them like rice – for dinner! Half an hour later, she was eating Jambalaya with steel cut oats. Digging into leftovers the next day, we all agreed: steel cut oats were destined for much more than breakfast! Inspired by Ithaca’s rich offerings of local farms and diverse restaurants, we explored the endless possibilities of steel cut oats and raised fun in the kitchen to a new level. We crafted our convenient frozen dinner entrees by pairing whole grain steel cut oats with a colorful palette of bold spices and fresh, natural ingredients – the kind of real food you would use in your own kitchen. And our first adventurous eaters loved them, spreading the word about the new dinner grain in town.
