SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital - AKA University Hospital - is definitely the best. It is a level 1 trauma center! In addition, it's a teaching hospital which is a hospital you want to go to because they usually have the most advanced technology and techniques and they double check the patient so many times b/c students, residents, and doctors (attendings) will see the same patient.

For heart related problems and it's surgery I'd recommend St. Joseph's hospital as it's their specialty. Three of the largest hospitals in Syracuse which are all excellent are located within blocks of each other near the downtown: they are Upstate University, Crouse Irving (basically attached to Upstate), St. Joe's, and the fourth, Community General which is near Onondaga Community College on the sw part of the city. I've been to all of them and they're all good. Upstate does have the helicopter landing pad to bring in emergencies.

Actually, St. Joe's is on the North Side.

St. Joe's may have a good heart center but their emergency room is terrible. Avoid.

I believe that Upstate also has an advanced burn unit. And a new children's hospital will be opening soon, if it hasn't already.

Is this the hospital I passed today right off the Syracuse campus, with the interesting looking structure on the outside of the building which resembled one of those elevators you see on the outside of a building to give people a view from high up? (don't know how else to describe it, lol!)

Actually the top 2 floors of it is the childrens hopsital opening in the middle of september. The rest of it is cardiology, neuroscience, and some oncology which recently opened last month. It is amazing.

University Hospital is the hospital of SUNY (state university of new york) Upstate Medical University which consists of the college of medicine, health professions, nursing and graduate studies. It is 1 of only 125 academic health centers in the country.

Crouse is a private hospital.

You also have to VA pretty much on the same street.


SUNY Upstate Medical University

Let me know if you have any questions.
