Utica vs. Binghamton Hospitals


With no reports or studies, Oneida County is awarded $300M for a new hospital. In recent times, three different hospital have become two, and now it's reported Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare will merge with St. Elizabeth's. This would give Utica a single hospital system.

Binghamton has a smaller population, yet has two different hospitals, Lourdes Hospital and Binghamton General, plus a third focused on mental health Greater Binghamton Health Center.


Binghamton has a population of 47,400 people, and a 25-mile radius population of 283,202 people. This is compared to Utica’s figures of 62,000 people and 365,537 respectively.

Binghamton is smaller, yet has two separate hospitals (totaling 392 beds), which are owned two different health systems, UHS Inc and Ascension. Additionally a third hospital, Greater Binghamton Health Center, is for psychiatrics and reported to have 101 beds.

How does this compare to Utica today, and the proposed MVHS Downtown Concept? One Utica report is titled, One Hospital Economic Development Fail, and what about "healthcare"?
