Core Services at Otsego Memorial Hospital

Healthcare has never been simple, but the COVID-19 pandemic has driven us to go beyond what we ever thought was possible and has pushed Munson Healthcare to remodel the way we provide care for patients, while keeping staff protected in their new work environments.

Although it is uncertain what the future may bring, we know by maintaining and strengthening core services at Otsego Memorial Hospital, we are securing healthcare for future generations to come. In addition to core services, donations in 2020 and 2021 will be utilized for additional safety, diagnostic, and testing equipment and a new ventilator. Our primary focus is, and will always be, your health, safety, and wellbeing.

Surgical Services

No area is subject to as much rapid and advancement in medical technology as the surgical services department. In 2019, Otsego Memorial Hospital established separate ambulance and walk-in Emergency Department entrances, added additional patient triage rooms, and reconstructed an operating room to accommodate the da Vinci Surgical System. Projects and updates of this caliber would not be possible without community support, and help to secure the future of healthcare in our community. The progressive expansion of surgical methods, spaces, and equipment keeps surgical care and recovery local while improving patient experience.

The total cost for these critical innovations at Otsego Memorial Hospital is $300,000.


Patient Needs

The Patient Needs Fund provides financial assistance for the urgent needs of patients during a health-related crisis. Medical social workers and case management staff identify and approve financial assistance through this fund, based on patient needs. Immediate assistance is often provided until other resources can be arranged in partnership with other human services agencies.

Help provided through the Patient Needs Fund includes:

  • Gas cards, which allow patients to travel to and from home for medical appointments.
  • Assistance with groceries, medications, rent/mortgage payments, utilities.
