HORNELL, N.Y. –St. James Mercy Hospital has launched a new website dedicated entirely to keeping residents of the Hornell region up to date on the construction of the new Hornell Medical Village. Located at www.thenewstjames.com, the site features photos of the construction progress, a project timeline, and an outline of what the new facilities (hospital and office building) will include.
“The Hornell community has been extremely excited about, and supportive of, this project, and we designed the site to provide information quickly to anyone who wants to stay up-to-date on what’s going on,” said Dustin Hewit, St. James Mercy Hospital Director of Communications.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held November 8 for the Hornell Medical Village, future home of the new St. James Mercy Hospital and adjacent Medical Office Building.
St. James Mercy Hospital was awarded $54.9 million from New York State in 2016 to cover construction costs associated with the new Hospital and the implementation of a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. In July of 2017, the State announced an additional $7.9 million for the new Hospital project.
The Medical Village, located at 7301 Seneca Road, North Hornell, will provide for accessible and efficiently organized ambulatory care services. The Village concept brings together primary care, specialists, emergency medicine, general surgery, outpatient services, inpatient care, and more on one health care campus. This will make it easier for patients to access quality care, support efforts at recruiting and retaining top providers to the area, and increase delivery efficiency across the spectrum of services.

The Medical Office Building is expected to open in 2018, and the new Hospital will follow in 2019.
