In Essex County, Elizabethtown Community Hospital serves as the central source for the delivery of health care services to county residents and visitors to the Adirondack Park. Due to the remote nature of the region, the hospital and its specialty clinics allow residents to obtain high-quality care close to home.

  • Two, 24-hour emergency departments
  • 25-bed inpatient unit
  • Inpatient/outpatient rehab
  • Radiology
  • Laboratory
  • Chemotherapy/Infusion
  • Cardiology, gynecology, gastroenterology, oncology, orthopedics, pediatrics and pulmonary clinics

Critical Access Hospital

Elizabethtown Community Hospital is the only federally designated critical access hospital (CAH) north of Albany and east of Lake Ontario. In that capacity, Elizabethtown serves as a rural acute care manager, performing lifesaving services and coordinating the transfer of patients in need of additional and immediate care to other hospitals with which it has agreements in place.
