Carthage is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital that serves approximately 83,000 residents living in Jefferson, northern Lewis and southern St. Lawrence Counties. Originally, Carthage Area Hospital was a 78-bed facility until it applied for Critical Access Designation in the spring of 2014 and received the designation on July 2, 2014.
The Hospital is proud to serve our North Country neighbors, our military personnel, and their families from Fort Drum. Fort Drum and the 10th Mountain Division (Light) are one of a few military installations within the United States that does not have its own on-post military hospital. Meeting our Hospital’s mission in healthcare support and well-being, we continually assess our efforts to improve as well as expand needed services and technologies for our community. This includes the healthcare support to our dedicated Soldiers from Fort Drum and the 10th Mountain Division (Light). As patriots, we value and appreciate our military and their families and do our most to assist them in becoming an integrated part of our community; while using the services of our facility.
