Building Cornell Health

Temporary main entrance

An updated & expanded health center

Gannett Health Services is half-way through a two-year renovation and expansion project.

Visitors to Gannett now access services in our newly built addition. The original facility facing Ho Plaza will be renovated between June 2016 and summer 2017. In fall 2017, the updated and expanded facility will open in its entirety as “Cornell Health.”

Beginning June 27, 2016:

  • Services are provided in our new addition behind the original Gannett building.
  • Our temporary main entrance is on Campus Road, just down the hill from Ho Plaza.
  • A second entrance – beneath the building underpass – is wheelchair accessible.
  • Patient/client parking will continue to be extremely limited (please see the map below). Visit our Transportation & Parking page for more information.
  • General check-in is on Level 3 (take the elevator or stairs up from Level 1).

Your care during our transition

Throughout our renovation project, we will continue to provide the same services, number of appointments, and level of care to which our patients and clients are accustomed. 

However, we recognize that the changes to our facility and the temporary locations of some of our services may be inconvenient or challenging for some of our visitors. Please do not hesitate to speak with a staff member if you feel your care has been compromised. We also invite you to share your feedback about how we can improve our services, or contact a patient advocate with questions or concerns.
