A long history of service and growth
Guthrie Clinic is a multispecialty group practice that was founded in 1910 by Dr. Donald Guthrie. Within a year of his arrival, Dr. Guthrie expanded services at Robert Packer Hospital as he recruited physician specialists to join Guthrie Clinic, which he intended to model after the Mayo Clinic where he had just completed his residency.
Guthrie has grown in size and capability in the last century, and now serves as a major regional referral center where more than 1,600 physicians send their patients. In 1977, Guthrie opened its first regional office in Troy, Pa. Today Guthrie has 23 regional offices located throughout the regional to provide primary care and outreach specialty care and testing to its patients close to where they live.
Guthrie Healthcare System
In 1990, Guthrie Healthcare System was established as a not-for-profit entity that encompasses all of the hospitals, hospice and home care services, a network of medical equipment supply outlets and the Guthrie Foundation for Medical Research. Guthrie Healthcare System offers a comprehensive range of services designed to enhance the health and well being of the communities that Guthrie serves.
In 2001, Guthrie Clinic and Guthrie Healthcare System, not-for-profit organizations that share a common history and tradition of excellence, joined to create Guthrie Health, a not-for-profit, integrated health care delivery system.
Guthrie Health today
Today, one of the longest established group practices in the country, Guthrie has more than 250 primary and specialty care physicians that provide comprehensive care for 200,000 patients in 23 regional offices and three hospitals in the Twin Tiers region of northern Pennsylvania and southern New York. Guthrie’s commitment to its core values of patient centeredness, teamwork and excellence—the defining values upon which Guthrie Clinic was founded—remains robust and unchanging.
