New Hospital Construction

new st james hospital

Healthcare is changing at a rapid pace. And Hornell continues to thrive and grow as industry evolves and jobs make their way back through upstate New York. St. James Hospital was founded in 1890, but our community needs a hospital that meets the health care needs of today.

In early 2020, the new St. James Hospital will open. An adjacent Medical Office Building (MOB) opened in December 2018.
