Why Give?

At one time or another, we seek medical treatment for ourselves or a loved one. We all want and deserve the best healthcare available when we need it. At Cortland Regional Medical Center, we are fortunate to have a strong, not-for-profit hospital with skilled clinicians who deliver care with compassion. Since 1891, Cortland Regional Medical Center has been the foundation of healthcare in Cortland County. Your gifts, large or small and combined with others, make an important contribution to CRMC's effort to maintain the "margin of excellence" our patients have come to expect for today and tomorrow's generations.
