  About St. James Mercy
St. James Mercy Hospital

Founded in 1890, St. James Mercy Hospital has provided health care services to residents in the Hornell and surrounding communities for more than 125 years. During this time, St. James Mercy has evolved from its humble beginnings as a small, rural farmhouse to the regional, full-service hospital it is today.

Governed by a self-perpetuating community based board, St. James Mercy Hospital is a community of persons committed to being a transforming, healing presence within the rural communities served, particularly addressing the needs of the poor, underserved and disadvantaged.

St. James Mercy Hospital provides compassionate, quality care and offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services, including emergency, acute medical and surgical imaging, and laboratory. Special services include cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation; physical and speech therapies. St. James Mercy Hospital also runs an Express Care, a Coumadin clinic, a personal emergency response system called MercyLine, mammography, digital imaging and orthopedics.

The network of physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants provide primary and specialty care to enhance access to health services for residents of our area.

To give the community the best care possible, St. James Mercy Hospital has partnered with various health care entities from across the region. They include:

  • UR Medicine: Supporting the hospital’s continued transformation
  • Loyola Recovery Foundation: In-patient and out-patient addiction services
  • Fresenius Medical Care North America: Dialysis services
  • Post Acute Partners: Long term and adult day care facility
  • Oak Orchard Health: Pediatric and primary care
Prevention and wellness programs have grown significantly in recent years and St. James Mercy Hospital also serves as the lead agency for grant funded efforts under the auspices of the Cancer Services Program of Steuben County, which includes cancer screening.
