Emergency / Walk-In Rendering
New Emergency Department under construction at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital
UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital has been serving the Chenango County area for more than 110 years. The need for local healthcare has never been greater.
Over the last five years, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital has created a plan for expansion, strategic development and technological advancement called The Chenango Medical neighborhood. The plan involved many departments within the hospital, all of which were either redesigned, moved or both. The pinnacle of the project comes with the building of a new Emergency Department and Walk-in Center on the west end of the hospital.
This project is expected to be completed in December 2021.
As you can see from the architect rendering, the rear of the facility is also the hospital's main entrance. The Emergency Department and new Walk-in Center also have new entrances near the hospital’s main entrance.
This new and much larger Emergency Department will include large private trauma bays, modern equipment, close proximity MRI and radiology services as well as many more patient rooms. The new Emergency Department will offer the same advanced medical service previously provided and will remain open 24 hours a day 365 days a year. The new larger footprint offers the privacy that patients expect from an Emergency Department, while at the same time offering trauma and lifesaving services in an efficient manner.
The Chenango Medical Neighborhood plan also includes a new Walk-in Center adjacent to the Emergency Department. This service offers a convenient option for minor medical issues and does not require and appointment. The Walk-in Center will be open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Walk-in Center provides treatment for a variety of injuries and illnesses, including:
• Cuts, scrapes and minor lacerations
• Muscle aches and pains
• Sore throats and colds
• Urination with difficulty or pain
• Coughs and wheezing
• Minor eye injuries or infections
• Fractures and sprains
• Work-related injuries
• Minor motor-vehicle injuries
