Creating a great patient experience is what the Wilson Project is all about. The goal of the exciting new clinical tower taking shape at UHS Wilson Medical Center is to provide a state-of-the-art healing environment for the patients we serve in the Southern Tier well into the future.

The project is the culmination of an incredible amount of foresight, dedication and hard work on the part of a number of people: community supporters, board members, foundation donors, providers, employees and project partners.

The groundbreaking ceremony we held in April represents a major step forward in the enhancement of UHS Hospitals’ facilities. The result will be not just a magnificent building—and it will be magnificent—but a great place to provide and receive care.

The structure is the largest capital project UHS has ever undertaken, and the first expansion of the UHS Wilson campus in more than 30 years. The tower will give us even more capacity to deliver quality care. We will also be able to recruit and retain outstanding physicians, advanced practice providers and clinical staff who will be attracted to a modern, state-of-the-art medical center complex.

For all of us, for our neighbors and loved ones, and for the generations yet to come, the Wilson Project will support excellence in care and address the needs of the critically ill in our region.

We are thrilled by the opportunity to move ahead with a project of this magnitude and importance. We are incredibly grateful for the community support that has made it possible. And we are committed to using the clinical resources that will be available here to save lives and serve tens of thousands of individuals and families in the years ahead.
