Take a Look at Upstate NY


Upstate New York’s hospitals offer healthcare professionals a special quality of life.  Our hospitals are community focused and committed to ensuring that every patient receives personal attention and the highest quality of care.  Hospitals are located in virtually every type of environment in which you’d like to live and work. With its diverse geography, people who love the outdoors love Upstate New York. Upstate hospitals are located in the majestic Adirondacks, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and the Finger Lakes, as well as the cities of Albany, Syracuse, Binghamton, Plattsburgh, Watertown, and Utica.  Hospitals are in communities close to peaceful lakes, fishing, ski resorts and hiking trails, and within quaint villages which you can stroll.  Our largest medical centers are in manageable cities with plenty of cultural activities.

Upstate New York includes the Adirondack State Park with more than 3,000 lakes and 30,000 miles (48,000 km) of streams and rivers and over 2,000 miles (3,200 km) of hiking trails — the largest trail system in the nation.  With its combination of private and public lands, its large scale and its long history as a place people live to coexist with nature, the Adirondacks are a distinctive place to live, play, and work.  

Upstate New York also includes the St. Lawrence Seaway, a system of locks, canals and channels that permit ocean-going vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes, as far inland as the western end of Lake Superior.  In Central New York, the heart of the Empire State, enjoy museums, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and countless outdoor activities and cultural events.  In the Capital-Saratoga region, enjoy the State capital in Albany, numerous museums, and the history and splendor of Saratoga and surrounding communities.

The region has many excellent restaurants, bookstores, cinemas and theaters. Upstate New York communities are also home to many public and private colleges including more than 25 State University of New York campuses.  The State University of New York is the largest comprehensive university system in the United States.  A plethora of cultural events and community activities year-round take advantage of the splendor of each of the four seasons.
