Emergency Care You Deserve!

 Having not been in an emergency room for more than 20 years, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I found myself in need of some medical care one Sunday morning. While at theOswego Hospital ER, my care was excellent and I was treated with the utmost respect and coutesy by everyone I encountered.
