PLATTSBURGH, NY (07/09/2018) - Residents of the University of Vermont Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) will unveil their new home on Wednesday, July 11 with an Open House and Ribbon Cutting.

CVPH’s new Skilled Nursing Facility includes larger common areas and new lounge space. There is also a kitchen/dining area featuring a steam buffet, a Dental Suite, Beauty Shop and laundry facility. Twenty six residents currently call the CVPH Skilled Nursing Facility home. 

“This new facility offers our residents a warm, safe and comfortable space to live,” said Bradley Heller, SNF Administrator.
