Helping Today. Shaping Tomorrow. The 1910 Society

In 1910, Dr. Guthrie came to Sayre, Pennsylvania and founded a multi-specialty group practice modeled after the Mayo Clinic, where he had just completed his surgical residency. From these humble beginnings, Guthrie has evolved into a major non-profit integrated health care delivery system, with hundreds of physicians and advanced practice providers, home health and home care services, and a research institute. The five Guthrie hospitals – Robert Packer Hospital, Corning Hospital, Cortland Medical Center, Troy Community Hospital and Towanda Memorial Hospital – serve residents in north central Pennsylvania and central New York. Guthrie’s commitment to its core values of patient centeredness, teamwork and excellence—the defining values upon which Guthrie Clinic was founded—remains robust and unchanging.

Building upon our rich history, the 1910 Society has been created to recognize donors that demonstrate their passionate support of Guthrie’s excellence by making an annual donation to Guthrie of $1000 or more.  Through educational and social events, members become informed community leaders, able to share information and perspectives of both the community and the network. Through the generous support of 1910 Society members, Guthrie can make improvements to facilities, provide the latest technology and equipment, enhance services offered, participate in groundbreaking research and much more. Your support directly impacts the care we can provide to our patients, ensuring Guthrie continues its tradition of providing high quality health care close to home.
