Samaritan Medical Center (SMC), a 287-bed full service community hospital, is just that – the center for healthcare across the counties, cities, towns and villages of New York’s North Country. Located in the City of Watertown in Jefferson County, SMC is the largest provider of healthcare from Burlington, Vermont to Syracuse, New York – a total of 286 miles – catchment of 260,000 – with over 1,700 employees and 180 physicians. Academic teaching opportunities are available in our Family Practice and Internal Medicine Osteopathic Residency training programs for those interested. SMC’s solid financial outlook and strategic plan have resulted in a significant expansion and renovation project that will improve the entire Samaritan campus. Patients can expect state-of-the-art facilities and services as well as a strong commitment to high quality healthcare.
