Updated 5/10/22

UHS has reduced the number of visitors permitted at UHS Binghamton General Hospital and UHS Wilson Medical Center, with certain exceptions in place, as of Saturday April 30, 2022.

The restricted visitation is necessary for now to help prevent the spread of disease as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. UHS is committed to offering the safest and most effective care of our patients while also ensuring visitor and staff safety. 

Visitors are still required to wear masks while in our facilities.  In addition, visitors will be screened by visitor management or reception staff upon arrival. 

Screening will include:

  • In the last 10 days, have you experienced any cold- or flu-like symptoms, such as the presence of sore throat, runny nose, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, diarrhea or new loss of taste or smell?
  • Have you had close contact with anyone who has been laboratory-confirmed as positive for COVID-19?
  • Are you or anyone in your household currently under quarantine or in isolation after being exposed to acquiring COVID-19?

Visitors or support persons who answer yes to any of the above questions, or who show obvious symptoms, will not be permitted to enter.

For patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, visitation will be limited to end-of -life care, patients in labor and pediatric patients. Visitors must wear protective equipment and comply with care team instructions. In certain circumstances, visitation may be approved and arranged with the care team for long-term patients with COVID-19.
