Due to concerns for the safety of patients and staff, a plan is being put in place in the second quarter of 2012 to better control access beginning with the emergency departments. In the future, areas beyond the waiting room/triage area will be accessed with a hospital ID badge. There will be a buzzer or staff available in case you forget your badge, but wearing your badge would be a good habit to start for all areas of the hospital.
If you donít have a badge already for the parking ramp, you may want to stop at the UHS Employment Office at 227 Main Street, Johnson City, during regular office hours. Parking is available behind the building.
