Schuyler Hospital opens new unit, gives updates

Schuyler Hospital recently opened a relocated and renovated monitored beds unit, with new equipment to service intensive care and critical care patients.The monitored beds unit is now located in the southeast corner of the hospital’s Medical/Surgical Unit.Work is also proceeding on two additional projects.In November, Schuyler Hospital broke ground on renovations to their September Hill Women’s Center.The project to expand and upgrade women’s health services at September Hill is being made possible through the 2009 and 2010 Schuyler Health Foundation’s Family of Friends Campaigns.Renovations include: A 1,400 square foot addition and 1,070 square foot renovation of existing space. Clinic space will be expanded, allowing both of the Hospital’s OB-GYN’s, Dr. William Saks, and Dr. Zarmina Aman, to provide services at the renovated location. Additional women’s health services are also being planned. The location offers not only an ideal proximity to the Hospital, but a spectacular view of Seneca Lake.Renovations are expected to be completed by early February.The Hospital is also working with a developer and the Village of Watkins Glen to potentially bring physicians’ offices and a walk-in clinic to the former Dollar General property in the Tops Plaza in Watkins Glen.For more information, contact Schuyler Hospital at (607) 535-7121, or go to www.schuylerhospital.org
