About Adirondack Health & Leadership
Adirondack Health is the new name for the family of facilities and individuals who have provided sophisticated care to the Tri-Lakes region for the past 100 years. They include: Adirondack Medical Center, Adirondack Medical Center/Lake Placid, Mountain Health Center (Keene), Lake Placid Health Center, Tupper Lake Health Center, Mercy Living Center (Tupper Lake), Uihlein Living Center (Lake Placid) and Adirondack Dental Service (Lake Placid). These facilities provide a full range of medical, surgical and long term care services.
Adirondack Health is not only the leading provider of health care for the residents and visitors of the Tri-Lakes region, it is also the largest private employer in the Adirondack Park. In addition to the physical and social health of the community, Adirondack Health plays a significant role in the economic health of the community as well. With over 900 full-time employees, Adirondack Health has a $120 million annual impact on the local economy. This impact comes from the generation of payroll, income and property tax revenue, as well as the overall purchase of goods and services by our employees living throughout the area.
As a result of these factors, and more, Adirondack Health is a key community institution, and an advocate for improving the health and economic well being of the patients, residents and visitors it serves. We are leading care for a healthy community.
