For the last 20+ years, the Cayuga Area Physicians' Alliance (CAPA) has been one of the best known physician organizations in New York State, with a reputation for excellence and innovation that has garnered respect both regionally and nationally. CAPA is a partner with Cayuga Medical Center in the Accountable Care and Clinical Integration networks known as Cayuga Health Partners/Cayuga Area Plan (CHP). We're an organization that values collegiality, interdependence and mutual cooperation in dealing with patients and medical colleagues, and provides multiple opportunities for physicians to become leaders in the clinical integration program, even for new physicians who are just moving to Ithaca. CAPA offers physicians a chance to learn about new developments in health care at the local, regional and national levels, thereby providing them with the best opportunity to be successful in an ever-changing and complicated market. We also enjoy a strong relationship with healthcare administrators and managed care representatives locally and regionally, opening new avenues of communication and understanding in the delivery of healthcare.
If you're a provider interested in joining the CHP healthcare network, let CAPA show you why you'll want to become a member. If you're a patient looking for a new practice or health care provider, we hope this website will give you a good understanding of the depth and breadth of our clinical experience and expertise. Patient, physician, parent, employer, or administrator - whatever your healthcare needs may be, CAPA looks forward to your joining our team!
