Guthrie Cortland Medical Center announced today that new CT equipment will be installed on the campus, requiring the temporary relocation of the hospital’s Main Entrance. 

Beginning Thursday, September 24, the hospital’s Main Entrance on Alvena Avenue will be closed for six weeks. During this time, all patients, employees, medical staff, visitors, and vendors must enter, be screened, and exit through the Emergency Department/West Entrance.  

“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 CT 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 CT scanner,” she explained.  

The new CT scanner is part of a 1.2 million dollar radiology upgrade at Guthrie Cortland Medical Center that will support the hospital’s new 10,000 square foot Cancer Treatment Center, which will be located adjacent to the medical center at West Main and Loope Streets. The new cancer center is scheduled for completion in late summer 2021.  

Patient, visitor and employee parking areas have been reconfigured and will be clearly marked.
