Located in the Village of Cooperstown, Bassett Healthcare offers one of the best rural health care systems in the country
Editor's note and testimonial: As tourists who visit Cooperstown, N.Y., several times a year, we value the presence of Bassett Healthcare, a state-of-the-art facility not typically found in rural areas. With a big campus and a thoroughly professional staff, they helped us immensely when health problems affected our family. Being on vacation and getting sick is not exactly joyful, but Bassett's fine staff made us feel welcome, treated us promptly, and diagnosed us accurately -- the way we typically experience in our native Boston, Mass., which is renowned for its medical institutions. It is comforting to know that a rural hospital's commitment to excellence exists in our favorite vacation destination, the great Village of Cooperstown.
The facility is clean, has comfortable waiting rooms, and also a marvelous view of the Susquehanna River! If it wasn't a hospital, this would be a great location for a very, very large hotel. But, fortunately, Cooperstown does have Bassett Healthcare. We are most grateful, as tourists, of its vital presence.
