The UHS Wilson Project
Our new regional medical center in Johnson City will promote improved access to specialty and ambulatory care services and be a community partner in helping to improve the health status of Greater Binghamton residents. A parking lot dedicated to our new Emergency Department will also be included in this project.
Wilson Main Tower Progress
During a November 6 walkthrough of the Wilson Main Tower, our team captured photos of progress in the new emergency department, including triage and patient rooms. The first level of paving for the ED will start soon. Also shown in the walkthrough was the ambulance bay and the future registration area. You can see the progress as we get closer to fully enclosing the building by mid-December. Currently, the Terra Cotta and glass are 75% installed. Of course, our visit wouldn't be complete without a visit to the top!

About the Project
The Wilson Project in Johnson City will develop a new regional medical center: a six-story, state-of-the-art clinical tower on the campus of UHS Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City. Facing Main Street, the six-story, 183,000-square-foot, Wilson Main Tower will be the “front door” to UHS’ services going forward, and will feature a new trauma center and emergency department, a MRI suite, four inpatient units with private patient rooms, a surgical support area and a new roof-top helipad.
This is the first expansion of the UHS Wilson Medical Center campus in more than 30 years. The Wilson Project will make Johnson City’s UHS Wilson a true complement to Binghamton University’s Health Sciences Campus, with the two facilities standing adjacent to each other in the heart of the Johnson City Health & Cultural District.

As UHS grows and expands to meet the changing needs of the Southern Tier, many career opportunities are available for qualified healthcare professionals.
This is true across our multi-facility System today, and will be true as we create and open the new Johnson City regional medical center patient tower at the UHS Wilson Medical Center within the next five years.
