Elizabethtown Community Hospital

UVMHN-Elizabethtown Community Hospital
The University of Vermont Health Network – Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH) is part of a six-hospital network serving patients and their families in northern New York and Vermont. We have campuses in Elizabethtown and Ticonderoga, and community-based health centers located throughout the region. We’re not just caregivers and staff – we’re your friends and neighbors, offering expertise and compassionate care when and where you need them. We’re dedicated to providing you with the best medical care possible in an environment that supports your health and healing. That’s what we call the heart and science of medicine.

Critical Access Hospital
Elizabethtown Community Hospital is designated as a critical access hospital (CAH) by the federal government. This designation is given to small hospitals located over 35 miles from another hospital. The CAH must have agreements in place with other hospitals that are willing to accept patients requiring additional and immediate care. Those hospitals must trust the abilities and capabilities of the CAH, to effectively manage initial patient care. There are 1,324 CAHs across the United States and 18 of those are in New York state.
There are only five joint Commission-accredited critical access hospitals in New York. Elizabethtown Community Hospital is the only one north of Albany and east of Lake Ontario.

Adirondack Harvest

8487 U.S. Route 9,
Lewis, NY 12950
(518) 962-4810



Adirondack Harvest is a community organization formed out of concern for the loss and abandonment of farmland in the Adirondacks. Members realized that to keep local food available and to preserve the scenic vistas that farmland provides, farming needs to be profitable. Founding members also had a strong commitment to sustainable farms and wanted to insure that farm-fresh food is available. We currently operate as a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County.

Since its inception in 2001, Adirondack Harvest has grown to encompass Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, St. Lawrence, Lewis and Jefferson counties in northeastern New York. These counties contain major sections of the Adirondack Park and the Champlain Valley. Other portions of counties located within the Adirondack Park are also participating members including Herkimer, Oneida, Saratoga and Washington. Our focus has been on expanding markets for local farm products so that consumers have more choice of fresh farm products and on assisting farmers to increase sustainable production to meet the expanding markets.

Cornell Cooperative Extension


The mission of Cooperative Extension is to enable people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. Extension staff and trained volunteers deliver education programs, conduct applied research, and encourage community collaborations.

Our educators connect people with the information they need on topics such as commercial and consumer agriculture; nutrition and health; youth and families; finances; energy efficiency; economic and community development; and sustainable natural resources.

Our ability to match university resources with community needs helps us play a vital role in the lives of individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout Essex County.
