Winter Weather Planning Reminders (Sunday – Monday)

The National Weather Service is predicting that a significant winter storm will impact our service area beginning Sunday morning.  Forecasted snowfall accumulations range between 8” and 12” for the Binghamton area, with up to 18" possible in Norwich and Walton. The snow is anticipated to last into Monday evening.

During the storm, it is important to remember the following key points regarding UHS operations:

  • All UHS facilities, including the Walk-Ins, will remain open unless otherwise determined and communicated by Senior Management.
  • Normal schedules and operations will remain in effect for all locations unless otherwise determined and communicated by Senior Management.
  • In the event that state or county officials issue a State of Emergency that includes a “Travel Advisory or Travel Ban,” UHS employees may use roadways for travel to and from work.  Employee badges have the following “Disaster Pass” on the reverse side:

“Disaster Pass; Please pass bearer through emergency, police or fire lines.”

  • In the event that state or county officials issue a State of Emergency that includes a “Travel Ban,” Primary/Specialty Care sites within the affected county/area may close.  Walk-Ins and Ancillary Service locations will remain open until otherwise directed by Senior Management.
  • In the event that an employee or provider prefers not to travel to/from work and would rather sleep at UHS Wilson Medical Center, UHS Binghamton General Hospital or UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital, accommodations can be made.  Employees may reserve these accommodations in advance by contacting the Staffing Office (763.6602) at UHS Wilson Medical Center and UHS Binghamton General Hospital, or the Nursing Supervisor at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital.
  • The current plan is for the Hospital Command Center (HCC) at UHS Binghamton General Hospital to open beginning at 4:00 a.m. on Monday to assist with communication of updates and information, along with managing resources for the transportation of Mission Critical staff, if needed.  The HCC will provide support for operations at UHS Wilson Medical Center, UHS Binghamton General Hospital and UHS Medical Group locations. Once opened, the HCC can be reached at 762.2017.
  • Employees are urged to preplan and allow for additional travel time to ensure their safety.
  • Clinical staff should contact the Nursing Supervisor at their assigned site in the event they are unable to make it to work. 
  • Ancillary and Support staff should contact their Leadership team in the event they are unable to make it to work.
  • Effective at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, the gate on the Parking Garage at UHS Wilson Medical Center will be opened. The garage will be available for undercover parking by all employees through Tuesday at 5:00 a.m.
  • Managers and Supervisors are asked to review and revise staffing and on-call schedules for their departments in advance of the storm to ensure that appropriate staffing levels are available.
  • Additional updates will be posted throughout the storm to the UHS public website at nyuhs.org, the UHS Intranet and through the UHS Connections and Alertus Mobile Applications.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Stephen Smith (Administrative Lead, Emergency Management) at 762-3934.
