(Private) Rooms Maximize Patient Safety

Our goal is to provide as many patients as possible with private rooms.  Rooms typically have lots of daylight streaming in from tall windows overlooking the city of Syracuse. Research shows private rooms help create a healing environment. They are quieter and allow for families to more readily spend time with the patients, helping them get better more quickly. Private rooms also reduce healthcare infections.

Falls are the number one unplanned event that happens to patients in the hospital. The average cost of a fall in the hospital today is $20,000. Our patient rooms are designed to reduce the incidence of falls by helping patients better move around within the room.
