Crouse Hospital, with 2,700 employees, is one of Central New York's largest employers. We serve more than 24,000 inpatients, 65,000 emergency services patients and more than 150,000 outpatients a year from a 16-county area in Central and Northern New York.
Crouse is the region’s largest provider of maternity care services, delivering more than 4,200 babies annually, and is the state-designated regional referral center for high-risk neonatal intensive care services.
Crouse also operates one of the longest-running and largest ambulatory surgery programs in the U.S. in two surgery centers near the main hospital complex. Phase 1 construction on the Witting Surgical Center, a three-floor, state-of-the-art facility, was completed in late 2010 with the opening of 11 new operating rooms. An additional three ORs opened in late 2011, completing this $50 million project.
Other specialties include comprehensive diagnostic and interventional cardiac care (featuring the region’s only pediatric cardiac catheterization program); surgical services (including the latest advancements in robotic surgery); orthopedics; stroke care (Crouse is a NYS-designated stroke center and the first 'Gold Plus' stroke hospital in Syracuse); oncology; and the region's only hospital-based chemical dependency treatment services. The hospital also operates the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing, providing critical nursing education to more than 280 students annually. – less
