Guthrie and McNeil Development Reveal Additional Details in Planned Medical Offices on Route 281


Both representatives from Guthrie and McNeil Development were on-location at 4057 West Road (Route 281) in the Town of Cortlandville for the official announcement of a new investment by Guthrie in collaboration with McNeil Development.

The medical organization says they plan a new 30,000 square foot facility that will combine Guthrie’s primary care operations within the Cortland area, and bring in a “state of the art” medical office building. Guthrie says this expansion only extends their commitment to the Cortland Community.

“This facility will be the new home-base for [Guthrie’s] primary care team. That’ll include a walk-in service. We are recruiting currently for more primary care providers. We’re optimistic that we’ll have in this facility twelve primary care providers within the next year or so.” Shawn Karney, Associate Vice President of Regional Operations for Guthrie, said during a press conference.

Walk-in services by Guthrie will be expanded at the new facility, with a separate entrance at the building for walk-in care. This will allow Guthrie to extend the hours of operation into evenings and weekends. The building will also have lab and imaging services.

Karney said in phase two of the project, the second building part of the renovation will include multiple specialty services that are currently being determined and taken into consideration.

“This highlights Guthrie’s mission and vision that we care for our patients holistically [and] that they never have to leave the Cortland area to receive the absolute best care.” Karney continued.

Work on renovations has already begun, Guthrie says it hopes to have phase one of the facility done by Fall of 2024.

On the property there are a total of six buildings, the project will focus on buildings 5 and 6, the two most northern buildings. Both buildings are pre-engineered metal builds and work will convert them to look more like office type buildings. All work will bring the buildings to NYS clean energy compliance. The current open lot between the buildings and Route 281, will be redone for proper parking with greenery and lighting.

“I want to thank Guthrie for choosing McNeil Development for their support of the project. We’re honored to partner with Guthrie. We feel our values and mission are aligned for serving the Cortland Community. This is important to our company.” David McNeil of McNeil Development said during the press conference.
