For 100 years, Schuyler Hospital has been the healthcare provider for all ages in and around Schuyler County. Our long tradition of combining personal care with advanced technology provides a level of comfort, trust, and security that leads to outstanding patient satisfaction ratings. At Schuyler Hospital, we offer a wide range of medical services to the community, a highly skilled medical staff, and devotion to personalized care and service.

While our main hospital campus is located in Montour Falls, we have evolved over the years into a network of providers, programs, and services that reaches throughout Schuyler County and into southern Yates and Seneca Counties to meet the healthcare needs of a population of over 32,000 residents.

Whether you visit Schuyler Hospital for in-patient, observation or short-stay surgery, emergency room or primary care center, diagnostic services or other procedures, our skilled professionals at Schuyler Hospital offer you expert, specialized nursing and medical care.

Thanks to our affiliation with Cayuga Medical Center, we offer a number of specialized services right here at Schuyler Hospital, and can seamlessly transfer you to a higher level of care if needed.

In the last quarter of 2005, Schuyler Hospital was officially recognized as a Critical Access Hospital.   A Critical Access Hospital (CAH) is a hospital that is certified to receive cost-based reimbursement from Medicare. The reimbursement that CAHs receive is intended to improve their financial performance and thereby reduce hospital closures.

CAHs must be located in a rural area and meet one of the following criteria:

  • Over 35 mile distance from another hospital, or
  • 15 miles from another hospital in mountainous terrain or areas with only secondary roads, or
  • State-certified as a necessary provider of health care services to residents in the area.  (prior to January 1, 2006 only).  Source: Rural Assistance Center Online

In 2022, Schuyler Hospital’s Montour Falls and Ovid Primary Care Centers, along with the Specialty Clinic, earned Rural Health Clinic status.  These practices serve all patients regardless of ability to pay.  Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income.  For more information, ask at the front desk upon your visit, or email info@schuylerhospital.org.

Schuyler Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission.
