As we approach spring, Oswego Hospital like many homeowners, will be tackling its own list of building improvements, as it updates two of its most used departments.

The patient areas of the hospital’s emergency department will be updated with new attractive flooring, new ceiling tiles, improved lighting and fresh paint.

“This is our most used hospital area and we want our patients and their families to have a clean and comfortable area in which they receive their care,” said Oswego Health President and CEO Michael Harlovic. “These upgrades will be completed quickly and with minimal disruption.”

The emergency department provides care to more than 27,000 visitors each year. The department features 17 private patient exam rooms, all with their own televisions, as well as two trauma bays and the latest technology. A board-certified emergency medicine physician is always on staff and is supported by a team of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and technicians, who have the latest training.

The hospital will also upgrade its main entrance on West Sixth Street, with new furniture and flooring. The area will also receive a fresh coat of paint.

Oswego Hospital, a 164-bed acute care facility is part of the Oswego Health system.
