York Hospital offers three inpatient, medical surgical paths for adults who need to stay overnight or longer as part of their hospital experience. These areas, known as “Biewend North,” “Biewend South,” and “Strater” and are named so because of their locations in the hospital. Patients in these areas are treated to truly patient-centered care by a great team of nurses and other clinical specialists. All members of the staff are highly trained professionals who uphold the vision of York Hospital – “Our unique spirit of dedication to patient satisfaction sets us apart. It is the promise on which our current patients rely, to which new patients are attracted and by which each of us lives.”

At York Hospital, not only are our patients treated with state-of-the-art equipment and by experienced medical staff, they are also treated with unsurpassed care and in a comfortable setting. Patients are given warm bathrobes and flannel pajamas and can enjoy an innovative room service program for meals – which can include lobster rolls! Volunteers take time to chat and play cards or get a movie, book or favorite newspaper.  Look to the menu options in the navigation bar to the left to view additional information about our Inpatient services.
