UHS Delaware Valley Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital serving Walton, NY with emergency care and medical clinic services. We offer a wide range of the diagnostic and treatment services, as well as acute care.
Specialized departments within the Walton hospital include a 24-hour Emergency Care Department, the medical patient wing, with cardiac monitoring beds, and an Addiction Treatment Program.
Primary Care Centers in Walton, Downsville and Roscoe complement these services with first rate primary and preventive care close to home. Our staff of board certified, highly qualified physicians and allied health professionals have chosen to bring their skills to a rural area medical clinic in Walton, often from major metropolitan facilities.
While their training, expertise and dedication to providing high quality health care is no different than that of providers in more urban areas, they have opted to practice in a smaller area at our Walton hospital and primary care facilities, where they can take the time to get to know their patients better and respond to their concerns.
