CVPH welcomes growing families with private rooms, family-centered care and a safe, home-like environment.
Visitation Restrictions in Place
CVPH is committed to protecting its patients and staff from COVID-19 while doing everything possible to limit its spread within the community. In accordance with New York State Department of Health guidelines, the hospital has restricted visitation. At the CVPH Alice T. Miner Women & Children’s Center, that means the only visitor allowed is the mother's coach. That individual cannot leave the WCC until the patient is discharged. Meals for the visitor will also be provided. We recognize this is difficult for loved ones who cannot be present during and after the birth of a child and appreciate your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
UPDATE: Effective Saturday, March 6 the MRI/North Entrance will be closed each day from 9:30pm - 5am, please use the Emergency Department Entrance during this time.
Click here to register for access to an online platform made available through June 30. Just like the Alice T. Miner Women & Children’s Center Hello Babe Childbirth Education classes, this online platform follows The Gift of Motherhood book.
If you have questions or if you would like to receive a class folder in the mail please call (518) 562-7532 or email Hellobabe@cvph.org.
