(Oswego, NY – February 19, 2020) Oswego Health is taking care to the next level as we begin significant renovations to our medical surgical unit at Oswego Hospital.

This $7.6 million investment will completely renovate the third and fourth floors and will truly modernize inpatient care provided in Oswego County.

Scope of project includes:

  • Restructuring of all patient rooms to allow for more privacy and accommodation necessary for clinical support and diagnostic equipment. Once finished there will be a total of 40 private rooms and 4 semi-private rooms
  • Each patient room will be equipped with a new HVAC filtration system purchased through Healthway that will greatly improve the indoor air quality within the patient rooms
  • In addition, Indigo-Clean, a new light technology will be installed in each patient bathroom to continuously disinfect the surfaces within the bathroom area. The technology is known to reduce pathogens by nearly 99% creating a greatly reduced chance of hospital acquired infection and better patient outcome
  • Comfortable waiting areas for family members to gather on each floor
  • Relocation of the nurses’ station on both floors allowing for more immediate access to the care staff
