UHS: Excellence Close to Home
We’re here to help you stay healthy. That’s what UHS is all about!
All members of the UHS healthcare system work together to improve our community’s health and meet its needs with state-of-the-art hospitals, physician practices, long-term care and home care services. We strive to be a great place to work, practice medicine and receive care.
UHS is the Southern Tier’s largest and most comprehensive provider of healthcare services. A locally owned, not-for-profit system, it is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of residents of the region. Founded in Greater Binghamton in 1981, UHS was formed through the consolidation of three community hospitals. Over the years it has grown to encompass four hospitals, plus long-term care and home care services, and physician practices in Broome and surrounding counties.
Our pledge: We listen. We show respect. We give hope.
We care for two-thirds of the region’s population and produce $1.3 billion a year in total economic impact. With a 6,300-member work force across 60 locations, we are the region’s largest employer. Our medical staff is made up of 636 providers, 435 of whom are members of our affiliated UHS Medical Group.
