The Guthrie Clinic opened the doors to its newest facility on Monday, Feb. 7. Guthrie Ithaca City Harbor is a $30-million, 60,000 square foot, three-story medical office building, offering convenience and coordination of care unparalleled today in Tompkins County.
The facility will offer primary care, daily walk-in care, and 20 specialties including:
- Colorectal Surgery
- Comprehensive Breast Care
- ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery
- General Surgery
- Interventional Pain Management
- Optometry and Optical Services
- Physical, Occupational and Hand Therapy
- Sports Medicine
Facility highlights include a state-of-the-art GI/Endoscopy suite and comprehensive breast care including 3D mammography, a fellowship-trained breast radiologist and breast surgeon. The Sports Medicine team, with multiple Orthopedic surgeons, is trained in all parts of the body. An expansive physical, occupational and hand therapy area gets patients ready to return to their active lifestyle. Guthrie Ithaca City Harbor also boasts comprehensive eye care services including an optical shop.
“From the beginning, it’s felt like a collaboration to meet the needs of the residents of Tompkins County,” said Edmund Sabanegh, MD, President and CEO, The Guthrie Clinic. “The ability to complete a project in such a key piece of the city’s development was a fantastic opportunity, both for The Guthrie Clinic and more importantly, for our patients.”
Guthrie Ithaca City Harbor sits conveniently on the TCAT bus route. Kiosk check-in will streamline the registration process. The building’s Lean design keeps patients at the center of care - doctors, nurses and support staff will come to the patient’s exam room for all services.
“The modernization means all things done in one place,” said David Ristedt, MD, Regional Medical Director, The Guthrie Clinic. “You’re going to get your blood drawn in the room, you’re going to be screened in the room, and the doctor is going to see you in the same room, so really the whole visit is focused around you not having to move, but the rest of us moving around you.”
Scheduling an appointment can be done through the online eGuthrie portal at www.eGuthrie.org, even offering walk-in patients an opportunity to reserve their spot. Using eGuthrie, patients can also message their care team, have a virtual visit, view test results, request prescription refills and more. Patients can also schedule appointments by calling 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).
