Lourdes has been serving the Southern Tier since 1925 when it began as a 25-bed hospital in Binghamton. The Daughters of Charity managed the hospital bringing an impressive series of healthcare firsts to the region: recovery room, intensive care unit, Hospice, Electrodiagnostic Laboratory, and Regional Cancer Center. Today Lourdes is a 197-bed hospital with a 15-practice primary care network—a proud member of Ascension since 1999.
