In 1904, local philanthropist Mary Clark Thompson founded F.F. Thompson Hospital to bring excellent health care to this community.  Thompson Health's vision remains the same today - more than a 100 years later - to bring excellent health care to the people of the Finger Lakes. This is our mission, this is our legacy and this is the guiding force that shapes our future.

For you, the reward is in the exceptional care you receive. For the community, it's in a health system recognized for its high standard of care. Here are some examples of Thompson Health's many awards:
