Oswego Health recently began what will be a 15-month renovation project for the medical surgical unit at Oswego Hospital.
Opening in 2021, the third and fourth floors of Oswego Hospital will be completely renovated. Once complete, each floor will provide comfortable areas for family members to gather. The nurses’ station on both floors will be relocated allowing for more immediate access to the care staff. Most importantly, the majority of the patient rooms will be private which will solve what patients and their physicians fear most during a hospital stay: infection, exhaustion and noise.
The patients will love the privacy. Having a quieter room will lead to better healing. It’s a proven fact. You need to get the proper sleep to heal. The staff and I are very much looking forward to delivering care in this improved environment.
