CAP's Mission is to unify its member organizations, Cayuga Medical Center and Cayuga Area Physicians Alliance, in the pursuit of high quality, accessible and cost-effective healthcare for the population of patients we serve.

• EMPLOYERS - For a healthier workforce
• PAYERS - For a collaborative relationship
