Healthcare services and facilities in the Mohawk Valley continue to expand and are among the finest in New York State. The healthcare and social associations is 1.62 percent more than the average U.S. statistics, according to ecanned.com.

St. Elizabeth Medical Center, located in Utica, was founded in 1866 and at that time was the first hospital in central New York. St. Elizabeth Medical Center is noted for its accredited Family Medicine Residency Program, School of Radiology, and School of Nursing. The 201-bed acute care regional medical center with trauma center, heart institute, home care, and network of 18 satellite offices is operated by the Sisters of St. Francis. St. Elizabeth Medical Center provides skilled nursing services, infusion therapy, wound care, diabetic teaching, rehabilitation therapy, asthma and diabetes disease-management programs, and daily activity assistance.

Mohawk Valley Heart Institute (MVHI) based at St. Elizabeth was established in 1997 to support a heart program involving the expertise of several different hospitals. The MVHI now offers a breakthrough laser procedure that provides pain relief for patients suffering from severe coronary artery disease. MVHI has helped save lives, improved the quality of life, provided the convenience of staying close to home, and plowed tens of millions of dollars into the region’s economy.

The largest medical provider in the area is Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare with Centers of Excellence in Bariatric, Vascular, Cancer, and Rehabilitation. The maternity service, known as The Birthplace, delivers more than 2,100 births annually supported by a Special Care Level II Nursery. The hospital is home to the Regional Dialysis Center and provides nine Primary Care Offices to serve families in both Oneida and Herkimer Counties.

At Wiley Hall, residents with moderate healthcare needs have apartments as part of an assisted living concept. In the brand new Health Pavilion, residents receive the highest quality of skilled nursing care around-the-clock.

For over 100 years, the Masonic Care Community has a strong tradition enriching the Greater Utica community by hosting many community events on its 400 acre campus. The Community employs more than 650 people and continues to play a leading role in the health and economic development of the Mohawk Valley.

Founded in 1958, the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory (MMRL) is now noted as one of the top medical research centers in the world.
