ITHACA, N.Y. (WENY) -- People will soon have access to a wide variety of care at Cayuga Park in Ithaca. It has been a long time coming for the complex. After over two years of construction, and $32 million dollars in funding, people will soon have access to everything from walk-in care to specialty services. 

“We think this represents an investment in multiple specialties that this community needs and represents a consolidation of services that helps make it easier for patients to receive their care in one place,” Jeffrey Penoyer, the Chief Operating Officer for Cayuga Medical Associates, said.  

The new, expanded building has five floors. Each floor is tailored to a different service for patients. The fifth floor provides women's health services. 

“It has our breast care program, our Cayuga primary care women's health services, and our gynecology services,” he said.  

The fourth floor provides women's health imaging services. The third floor provides oncology services, both outpatient and in-patient services, as well as an in-house pharmacy. 

“The second floor represents our Cayuga primary care services,” he said.  

The first floor represents the patient service center. 

“...for lab services so they can...our community of patients can receive an array of lab services right here, by walking in,” he said.  

Penoyer's team worked with contractors and developers to give patients a calming environment when they walk into Cayuga Park. It is noticed in the most minute details from the lighting to the windows.  

“Sliding a lot of our exam rooms, which helps to increase the space and the footprint in our exam rooms...and it just creates a different feel for receiving care here,” he said.  

Cayuga Park will also have an "on-stage off-stage" approach. Penoyer said this method is meant to separate patients from the busy atmosphere with care providers behind the scenes. 

“It really allows them to access their care in a calmer environment,” he said. “They'll enter our exam rooms through one door, while the rest of their care team will enter exam room through another door, and it just creates a quieter place to receive care.” 

Cayuga Park is expected to open its doors to patients this fall season.
