Upstate Medical University is academic medicine at its best. We care for patients with a range of health issues from routine to complex. We train tomorrow’s healthcare providers, and we conduct research that may lead to the cures of the future.

This year as we celebrate 50 years our hospitals welcome a dynamic electronic medical records system called Epic that wasn’t even dreamed of 50 years ago. It will organize patient care documentation and allow patients access to much of their health information. Even as Epic illustrates technical advances, we are mindful to maintain the human touch and our important role in Central New York community.

Three examples in the winter issue of Upstate Health:

  • the physician who prescribes ballet to improve the lives of her patients with cerebral palsy, (p. 6,)
  • the scientist who helps us understand how smoking addictions affect babies in utero, (p. 11,)
  • the staff who volunteer on Onondaga County’s Search & Rescue Team, (p. 15.)

We hope you enjoy your Health, brought to you by Upstate.
