The Oswego Hospital, Fulton and Central Square Medical Centers, Urgent Cares, primary care practices, and our other specialized service locations, are open, safe and ready to care for you.
While these are truly unsettling times, we greatly appreciate the support and confidence you have placed in Oswego Health during this crisis.
We were prepared, we responded, and we remain diligent.
Oswego Health has introduced all new safety measures and protocols for our patients, families and staff.
Our community IS our priority.
When it comes to all your healthcare needs, we are right at home.
Protecting Our Patients
Your safety comes first and that is why we have implemented the following safety measures to keep you safe and prevent COVID-19 from spreading:
- Everyone entering Oswego Health facilities, including staff, will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms.
- Everyone entering Oswego Health facilities will be asked to wear a cloth mask. Patients may bring their own mask or may opt to wear one supplied by the health system.
- All medical staff will always wear surgical masks and protective eye wear, as well as other necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), always when caring for patients.
- Visitors are still prohibited. One support person will be allowed for delivering OB mothers; children under the age of 18; patients with confusion, altered mental status or developmental delays; and end-of-life patients. In addition, patients needing surgery will be offered support through the guidance of a surgical navigator.
- Six-foot social distances will be established in public areas such as waiting rooms.
- Extra cleaning and disinfection of high-touch, public surface areas will continue.
- For a complete listing of guideline, please read the Updated Guidance for Hospital Operators Regarding Visitation from the Department of Health.
Oswego County is our community, and the safety and well-being of our residents has always been and remains our main priority.
If you are experiencing symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath:
Call your primary care provider or the
Oswego County COVID-19 Hotline at 315-349-3330
It's important to call ahead of time rather than coming to a medical facility. Calling ahead directs you to the most appropriate care and allows precautions to protect yourself, other patients and healthcare providers.
The severity of coronavirus symptoms can range from very mild to severe. People who are older or have existing medical conditions, such as heart disease, may be at higher risk of serious illness. This is similar to other respiratory illnesses, such as influenza.
COVID-19 diagnostic test cash price is $100.
