Life in Bradford County
Bradford County is fortunate to be the home of Guthrie, a non-profit integrated health care delivery system that currently includes three hospitals, more than 440 physicians and mid-level providers, 32 regional provider offices in 23 communities across Pennsylvania and New York, home health and home care services, and a research institute.
- The 254-bed Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre is a Regional Level II Trauma Center and Truven Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospital and offers a full range of diagnostic, medical and surgical services.
- Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital is a full-service community hospital that provides inpatient, outpatient, critical care, surgery, radiology, specialized therapies, emergency care and emergency medical transport services.
- Guthrie Troy Community Hospital opened a new Critical Access hospital in Troy, offering 24-hour emergency services with 24-hour laboratory, radiology and ultrasound support; imaging services and medical/surgical services.
Bradford County has seven well-regarded public school districts and three parochial schools. Many of the public schools are known for their engineering and arts programs, and there’s a friendly rivalry among the schools’ athletic teams – especially when the football teams get under the lights on Friday nights.
When it comes to secondary education, there are three colleges/career centers in Bradford County, but many others within two hours or less, including Pennsylvania College of Technology and Pennsylvania State University, and on the New York side of the border SUNY Binghamton and Corning Community College.
