Welcome to the new Cornell Health!

We officially changed our name from "Gannett Health Services" in March 2017. “Cornell Health” was chosen by university administration to express the centrality of individual and campus health to Cornell’s academic mission, strategic plan, and identity as a caring community. We believe “Cornell Health” represents well our values, mission, and services – and is sufficiently expansive to support the innovations and partnerships that are necessary to provide high quality services and effective advocacy for our diverse campus community/ies into the future.

We invite you to learn more about our mission and values on our Who We Are page and join us in building Cornell Health.

Building expansion project

Our name change coincides with the renovation and expansion of our facility, a 2 1/2-year project due to be complete in summer 2017.

The expansion will increase our usable space from 25,000 to 52,000 square feet, allowing us to improve access to care for a student body that has doubled in size – and increased utilization of health services by 250% – since the "Gannett Clinic" first opened in the 1950s. The project has been a strategic priority of the university since the early 2000s, and is being funded by Cornell's schools and colleges, the central administration, and generous donors.

For the remainder of spring 2016 ...

Services will continue to be provided from our new addition while our original building is under construction. You'll find our temporary main entrance on Campus Road, facing Anabel Taylor Hall, with an accessible entrance beneath our building underpass.

We recognize that the changes to our facility and the temporary locations of some of our services may be inconvenient or challenging for some of our visitors. Please do not hesitate to speak with a staff member if we can help make things easier for you, or if you feel your care has been compromised. We also invite you to share your feedback about how we can improve our services, or contact a patient advocate with questions or concerns.
