Oswego Hospital, the communityâ€™s healthcare leader, will open its new emergency room walk-in entrance on West Seventh Street at 1 p.m. Wednesday, September 8th.
The main emergency room entrance returns to the West Seventh Street side of the facility after a year of construction work. Adjacent to the new entrance is a spacious and attractively decorated waiting area for patients and their families.
Ready to greet the public at this entrance will be a customer care representative who provides a helping hand to patients and their families. A care representative is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Just a month ago, four new private rooms were unveiled in the Emergency Room. â€œThe rooms are very patient friendly, comfortable and welcoming,â€ said Cupid Gascon, MD, Medical Director of Emergency Services at Oswego Hospital. â€œFrom the standpoint of the staff, the rooms provide advanced equipment in a larger area allowing them to provide exceptional care to the community.â€
Oswego Hospital offers the only emergency room in Oswego County. Once the entire project is completed at the end of the year, the new ER will feature 17 private patient rooms, all with the latest in technology, including a state-of-the-art cardiac monitoring system. The department will also house a sub acute area, where those with minor illnesses and injuries will be treated.
The New ER is just a portion of the $18 million hospital project. Just as the ER work is under way, the adjacent medical imaging department is undergoing its own transformation. When finished, this department will offer some of the areaâ€™s most advanced medical imaging equipment.
Portions of the hospital project were finished earlier this year. A new laboratory and intermediate care unit were opened in March.
The Oswego Healthcare System includes Oswego Hospital, The Manor at Seneca Hill, a skilled nursing facility; Springside at Seneca Hill, a retirement living community; an urgent care center in Fulton, as well as health services centers in Mexico, Parish and Phoenix.
