X101’s John Eves was recently able to speak with Cayuga Health President and CEO, Dr. Marty Stallone on the newly opened facility located at the Ithaca Mall in Lansing. The new facility is 60,000 square feet of space which will offer exam rooms with updated equipment to provide a better patient experience, an onsite laboratory, and kiosks for appointment check in. The new location also has a bus stop location outside the main entrance, and ample parking for patients.


Dr. Stallone told X101 Cayuga Health learned about the opportunity to open a facility at the mall during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic when Cayuga Health was conducting drive-thru testing in the parking lot. Over a thousand people were utilizing the services a day, Stallone said.

While utilizing the mall’s space, Stallone said that was when Cayuga Health realized they could consolidate multiple services offered under one roof. Work and planning took about two years until the new facility was open. 

“We’re very proud of the space, it’s got very amazing finishes, it’s easy to get to, it’s easy to get parking. It’s very accessible to patients in all types of ambulatory status’.”

Dr. Stallone said regarding the new facility. 

The facility also includes wide hallways, wheelchair access with assistance and wheelchairs provided if a patient needs them. Patients are also in close proximity to other amenities that are provided by the mall including food, and shopping.

Cayuga Health’s expansion has been significant, opening a 60,000 square foot facility in Ithaca, the 60,000 square foot facility at the Ithaca Mall, and an over 20,000 square foot facility on Tompkins Street in Cortland. Dr. Stallone says with the physical expansion done, it will now give Cayuga Health the opportunity to increase available programs offered.

“What’s next on our horizon is new and valuable programming. So clinical research; we’re growing clinical research first in human trials, particularly associated with our oncology service line. [Cayuga Health] is growing a specialty pharmacy.”

Dr. Stallone said to X101 News.

Current services offered at Cayuga Health at the Shops at Ithaca Mall include: Cayuga Heart and Vascular, Primary Care, and Rheumatology.
