The main entrance at Guthrie Cortland Medical Center is temporarily relocated to allow for the installation of new radiology equipment, closing the Alvena Avenue circle for at least six weeks.
During this time, all patients, employees, medical staff, visitors, and vendors must access the facility and be screened through the Emergency Department/West Entrance.
Patient, visitor and employee parking areas have been reconfigured and will be clearly marked.
Crews will be installing a new CT scanner is part of a 1.2 million dollar upgrade that will support the hospital’s new 10k square foot cancer treatment center under construction at West Main and Loope Streets.
That’s set for completion in late summer 2021.
“During the installation of our new CT scanner, we will utilize a mobile CT unit located on the west end of the Medical Office Building’s first floor,” said Guthrie Cortland Medical Center President Jennifer Yartym. “Patients accessing the mobile scanner will be travelling through the hospital’s Main Lobby and Main Entrance breezeway into the Medical Office Building. This pathway must remain clear to ensure patient privacy and safety, and reliable access to the mobile scanner.”
Fire and emergency personnel can still access to the Alvena Avenue entrance if need-be.
