The Guthrie Clinic – Why Work For Us?

A long history of service and growth

Guthrie Medical GroupDr. Donald Guthrie

Guthrie Medical Group is a multispecialty group practice that was founded in 1910 by Dr. Donald Guthrie. Within a year of his arrival, Dr. Guthrie expanded services at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital as he recruited physician specialists to join Guthrie, which he intended to model after the Mayo Clinic where he had just completed his residency.

Learning and Education

Academics are a distinguishing characteristic of the Guthrie organization, which date back to 1901 when the School of Nursing was founded. The Donald Guthrie Research Foundation started in 1942 and with funds from the Emily Guthrie Estate the Guthrie Research Institute was formed in 1980. Guthrie's commitment to learning and education includes the Internal Medicine Residency program in 1958, General Surgery Residency program in 1959, and the Family Practice Residency program in 1993.

Regional Offices

Guthrie has grown in size and capability in the last century, and now serves as a major regional referral center where more than 1,600 physicians send their patients. In 1977, Guthrie opened its first regional office in Troy, Pa. Today Guthrie has 25 regional offices located throughout the region to provide primary care and outreach specialty care and testing to its patients close to where they live.

Four Hospitals

In addition to its longstanding relationship with Robert Packer Hospital, Guthrie acquired Troy Community Hospital in 1985, Corning Hospital in 1999 and Towanda Memorial Hospital in 2015.

Guthrie today

Today, one of the longest established group practices in the country, Guthrie has more than 295 primary and specialty care physicians and 175 advance practice practitioners that provide comprehensive care for 200,000 patients in 31 regional offices and four hospitals in the Twin Tiers region of northern Pennsylvania and southern New York. Guthrie’s commitment to its core values of patient centeredness, teamwork and excellence—the defining values upon which Guthrie Clinic was founded—remains robust and unchanging.

Guthrie Mission & Values

As a non-profit health care organization, Guthrie, its physicians and employees are focused on improving the health and well-being of the communities it serves. Guthrie’s mission, vision and values statements articulate the principles on which the organization was founded and exists today.

Guthrie works with the communities we serve to help each person attain optimal, life-long health and well-being. We will do so by providing integrated, clinically-advanced services that prevent, diagnose, and treat disease, within an environment of compassion, learning, and discovery.

    I have been working at The Guthrie Clinic full-time (More than a year)


    I worked previously at another healthcare system closer to home so I was hesitant to commit to a 40 minute commute but Guthrie has been a wonderful place to work. I feel support from co-workers, colleagues and senior leadership. Our department feels like a second family. The expectations are high and the work is challenging (after all, this is healthcare!) but I am part of a great team that works hard, is highly accountable but likes to have fun in the process. People seem to advance or move on to new opportunities at Guthrie, which demonstrates that leadership recognizes talent. We are one of the few health systems in the region not affiliated or owned by a larger entity, which is refreshing. Health benefits are excellent. I love it here!


    Certain business practices can be a bit behind the times and it would be nice not to have to use PTO for holidays. Rural location can make it hard to attract talent.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at The Guthrie Clinic (Sayre, PA) in April 2015.


    I was contact by an administrative assistant in the department three weeks after applying yo schedule an interview. The first interview was a team interview with members representing different job responsibilities. I was contacted two weeks later for a second interview, which included a meeting with the VP and another group interview with the same people. I also performed a skills test. A representative of HR called me three weeks late to offer me the job.
