Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic

Turning Traditional into Exceptional

Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic
, a 262-bed community hospital and nursing home located in the Village of Clifton Springs, NY, has been the heart of the community it calls home since its inception in 1850. And in many ways, they have grown in tandem.

With a commitment to providing unsurpassed quality and personalized care to patients and families in Ontario County, Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic offers a range of specialty and subspecialty services, attractive and comfortable grounds, and a staff that provides an unparalleled customer experience.

While staying true to its roots, the hospital has grown to offer a wealth of services and now stands at the edge of a new era.

To keep our promise to deliver the best possible care to Ontario County and surrounding communities, Clifton Springs has set a goal of $12 million to create a new outpatient Medical Village and initiate additional projects that will modernize the hospital’s services and physical spaces.

But none of this is possible without your support.

Our hospital has stewarded a culture of health and healing for more than 165 years. And in our modern era, delivering outstanding care has become the backbone of a proud tradition. But it’s time for us to challenge long-established norms in the interest of progress toward better care, better experiences, and better outcomes.

The Lisk Morris Community Challenge

Now’s the time for you to make history at Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic!  The Hospital continues growing and evolving to meet the needs of our patients, and that growth is only possible because of dedicated community members who continue to support our mission.

The Lisk Morris Foundation was formed by the late Drew and Marjorie Morris, who left a legacy of supporting Clifton Springs Hospital.  We are grateful that the Foundation has chosen to continue that generosity in support of the Emergency Department and Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) at Clifton Springs by issuing a challenge to local donors.

The Challenge calls upon our community to join in that support. The Lisk Morris Foundation will match ALL donations to the ED, CPEP, or unrestricted gifts to the hospital, up to a total of $375,000.

We challenge each of our community members to join us by giving whatever they are able in support of our local hospital to ensure that care is available for our families and neighbors, when and where we need it.

Recent renovations to Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic Emergency Department & Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) provide increased medical bed capacity, increased CPEP bed capacity, a trauma and resuscitation room with increased space and capabilities, and two dedicated triage rooms. With a gift of $250 or more, you can add your name and/or a personalized inscription on the new donor wall in this facility.

“Most people have to travel at least 20 or 30 minutes to receive the kind of care we have in our backyard. And as part of the Rochester Regional Health family, we further benefit from the system’s high quality standards. We can’t take this for granted.

We have to care for our hospital in the same way we care for any other critical public service. Our support—as advocates or donors—preserves and elevates an iconic community resource, helping to make it one of the area’s most trusted healthcare destinations. That’s something to be truly proud of. The only way to be successful in this endeavor is to work together.”
