In an effort to position itself to accommodate the needs of its patients and in anticipation of relocating additional clinical services to the main campus, Carthage Area Hospital has moved their Billing and Accounting Offices off-site. Carthage Area Hospital’s Billing & Accounting offices are now located at 40 Franklin St., Suite 1A, Carthage, NY 13619, the former location previously occupied by Dr. Fish and Dr. Harvey. “The new location offers easier access for patients who come to pay or inquire on their bills, as well as increases our presence in the community,” said Taylour Scanlin, Carthage Area Hospital Marketing Director. Patients can still choose to pay their bills at the main campus at the reception desk located at the main entrance.

Dr. Cheryl Tousant, PT, DPT has been practicing Physical Therapy at Carthage Area Hospital since 2009 and currently focuses her practice towards the elder adult. We would like to share with the local community an adventure she intends to partake this October. Cheryl is training to complete a rim-to-rim hike in the Grand Canyon. Starting at the North rim and ending at the South rim, the planned hike will consist of a minimum of 23.5 miles, with a 5,761 foot descent and 4,380ft ascent.
Cheryl is utilizing the nearby Adirondack Park to assist in building strength and endurance required for this adventure. Initially started as a personal journal, Cheryl began to use an online blog to track her training and progress. Not only does she share her training adventure, she also includes educational tidbits, sharing the rationale behind her training techniques. Her blog entitled “Run. Jump. Play,” will allow interested persons to share in her journey with past preparations and up-to-date information as the planned trek draws near.
