Map and driving directions

As an independent, nonprofit healthcare system, Oswego Health is governed by a Board of Directors. What makes our Board different from many other hospitals is that ALL strategic decisions, whether operational or monetarily, are made locally.

Oswego Health has been fortunate to have diverse representation from the community as board members throughout the years, including those in the financial sector, healthcare, higher education, economic development as well as business owners.
