Transcending to a wellness center, the hospital will have a Chronic disease treatment center so the youth of this area embrace their health and look for prevention options. Cornwall is also increasing physical therapy at this campus. With this new combination system they are keeping the care locally in Cornwall and in Newburgh. Open access primary care and extended primary care are possible additions in the future depending on funding and if the $12 million grant is given to the hospital. At the Cornwall campus there are multiple treatments such as sleep, lab, pain management, physical therapy, primary care and much more. All these reasons are why the parking lot is always full.
