Emergency Room Secure Access to be Implemented

Friday, April 13, 2012 at 11:00:17 AM

In order to provide increased privacy and a more secure environment for everyone, effective May 7th at Wilson Medical Center and May 8th at Binghamton General Hospital, entry points to the Emergency Departments will be limited and secured.

All doors with the exception of the Emergency Department Walk-In Entrance will be locked on a 24/7 basis and access will be limited to authorized individuals through the use of their UHS identification badge. As a secondary measure, intercom systems have been installed at both ED Ambulance Entrances and another identified access point. These systems will allow medical staff to request access if they forget their badge. To obtain a badge, please contact Human Resources at 763-6186 for available hours.
