Guthrie’s Forward Together Campaign Receives $25,000 Five Star Bank Donation

For more than 130 years, Guthrie has been evolving and growing to meet the ever-changing health care needs of residents of the Twin Tiers region of north central Pennsylvania and south central New York. Based on current and projected utilization as well as demographic trends, we have identified the need for additional specialty care and outpatient resources in Corning and other nearby communities along the I-86 corridor. To meet these needs, Guthrie plans to construct two large medical office buildings in these areas. A significant donation Guthrie received from Five Star Bank will help make those plans a reality.

Guthrie was honored to accept a generous donation from Five Star Bank in the amount of $25,000 in support of its Forward Together capital campaign. This campaign will help Guthrie transform, innovate, and inspire by supporting new facilities and investments in the latest medical technologies for patient care across the Guthrie system.

Five Star Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Martin K. Birmingham said, “Five Star Bank is very pleased to make this contribution in support of the Corning and Big Flats Medical Office Building projects. We have admired Guthrie’s transformation of medical facilities in the Corning-Elmira Region and appreciate the capital investments being made in support of world-class health care facilities and related services. In doing so, they improve the quality of life and promote the well-being of our customers and neighbors.”

Five Star Bank provides banking and lending services through a network of more than 50 offices throughout western and central New York. Their donation will support development in New York’s Steuben and Chemung counties, specifically construction of the Guthrie East Corning Medical Office Building on the campus of Guthrie Corning Hospital and a new medical office location in Big Flats. With more than 120,000 square feet of combined space, this ambitious project will offer enhanced access to critically needed specialty care services for area residents and revolutionize the way that care is designed and provided to our patients, giving them more convenience, better access to world-class medical specialists, and higher satisfaction.

“Thank you to Five Star Bank for supporting the Forward Together campaign at Guthrie,” said Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, Guthrie President and CEO. “Guthrie is proud to provide excellent care in the communities we serve and we look forward to putting this generous donation to work to grow and expand Guthrie programs that benefit patients every day.”
