Oneida Health’s Economic Impact

Kevin ProsserNews, Press Release

Oneida, NY – The presence of Oneida Health in Madison and western Oneida counties provides a significant benefit to those who live there. The clear benefit is convenient access to primary and specialty care, a 24/7 Emergency Department as well as access to a medical campus which houses a hospital and long term care facility. Oneida Health has also put the most advanced technology within reach through strategic investments, offering technology normally housed at larger health care entities.

In addition to providing the highest quality of care, Oneida Health also serves as an economic engine for the area it serves. An analysis provided by the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), using 2020 reports filed by Oneida Health illustrates the regional financial impact of the organization on its surrounding community:

  • $207,000,000 in Economic Activity
  • 1,600 Jobs Created
  • $69,000,000 Million in Payroll Expenditures
  • $24,000,000 Million in Tax Dollars Generated:
  • $10,000,000 Million in Community Benefits/Investments

Oneida Health’s 2020 economic activity was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically the decrease volume related to elective procedures, but is still significant for the region.

Gene Morreale, President and CEO of Oneida Health states “we are 100% focused on serving our community and providing for them services that we can do both safely and cost effectively.” He further states that “I am grateful for the support from the community members who can choose to go to other health care providers, but instead, come to Oneida Health for their care. That support allows Oneida Health to stay financially viable while growing our positive financial impact to this region.”

Oneida Health plans to continue on its path to ensuring community members have convenient access to quality care, rated by CMS as a 5-star hospital and will continue to develop programs and services to meet the health care needs of the communities it serves while providing a positive economic impact for the local economy.
