Nursing

For over seventy years, the Cortland County Health Department's Nursing Division has helped area residents with their healthcare needs.

We offer a wide range of services, including programs dedicated to the prevention of disease and the promotion of wellness, along with quality nursing care in the home.

We provide many of these services at no cost, and for fee-based programs, we work to accommodate those unable to pay. Our goal is the optimum well being of you and your family.
