Guthrie Sees Growth, Plans Tompkins County Expansion

November 30, 2018

Guthrie has announced plans to move forward with construction of a medical office building as part of a mixed-use property planned for Ithaca’s City Harbor waterfront development. 

Guthrie will occupy a three-story, 60,000 square-foot medical office building at 101 Pier Road. The building will house a mix of clinical services designed to meet the identified needs of the community.

According to Joseph Scopelliti, Guthrie President and CEO, the expansion will help the health system continue to meet the needs of a growing Tompkins County patient population. “Tompkins County is part of Guthrie’s primary service area and home to one of our largest and busiest medical group offices. We have had an established presence in Tompkins County for 25 years and we will continue to provide patients with choice as we serve the needs of the community,” said Scopelliti.

In recent years Guthrie has provided care for a significant number of patients from Tompkins County. “Last year we saw an increase in Tompkins County residents choosing Guthrie for their care. We’re pleased that we will be able to offer additional choices to the residents of Ithaca and surrounding communities as we bring more services to Tompkins County,” said Scopelliti.

Guthrie is a non-profit integrated health system located in north central Pennsylvania and upstate New York, serving patients from an 11-county service area. Guthrie is a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network and is the first health system based in Pennsylvania and New York to join this network. Guthrie is comprised of a research institute, home care/hospice, hospitals in Sayre, Pa., Corning, N.Y., Towanda, Pa., and Troy, Pa., as well as a multi-specialty group practice of more than 325 physicians and 210 advanced practice providers in a regional office network encompassing 47 sub-specialty and primary care sites in 21 communities throughout Pennsylvania and New York. In addition, Guthrie offers home medical equipment and respiratory therapy products at six convenient Med Supply Depot locations. Guthrie provides a wide range of services and programs to enhance the health and well-being of those it serves.
