Quality of life

Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center realizes that quality of life embodies a balance of both career and recreation. Located in St. Lawrence County, NY, the largest county in New York State, we offer abundant outdoor activities as well as cultural opportunities. The picturesque St. Lawrence River serves as the international border between us and neighboring Canada. We are within a short driving distance to metropolitan centers like Ottawa and Montreal as well as the Adirondack Mountains. A weekend could easily include an elegant dinner in Ottawa and skiing Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, NY.
