Major renovation at UHS Wilson

Starting this month, UHS will be replacing the roof of the Picciano Building at UHS Wilson Medical Center to convert the third floor of the building to a 25-bed, private-room cancer unit. 

Because the project is so extensive and complex, it will be necessary to vacate the entire Picciano Building for about a year. Hospital departments, clinics and food service functions that are currently housed in the building will be moved to temporary locations by Sunday, May 15. 

These relocations are designed to ensure the very best in patient, visitor and employee safety, comfort and convenience during a major renovation project.

Among the changes will be these:
•UHS Primary Care Johnson City, currently on Picciano 2, will move to UHS Primary Care 507 Main Street.
•The Internal Medicine services currently at 507 Main Street will be consolidated with the Internal Medicine office in the Summit Building on the UHS Binghamton General Hospital campus.
•The UHS Diabetes Center, currently on Picciano 2, will move to the UHS Sleep Center on Pennsylvania Avenue in Binghamton.
•Dining for visitors and employees will be available in the Harrison Street Coffee Shop and Lobby area of UHS Wilson. Patient meals will be delivered to nursing units from the UHS Binghamton General Food & Nutrition Department.
•Administrative and support offices currently housed in the Picciano Building will be moved to other areas on the UHS Wilson campus and other UHS facilities in Broome County.
