Visiting Hours

Visits from family and friends can play an important role in the healing process.

CVPH Visitor/ Welcoming Policy

Family members and loved ones are valued members of the health care team and play a key role in supporting the wellbeing of our patients. With respiratory illness season underway, we strongly recommend visitors, patients and anyone else outside our organization requiring access to our facilities wear a surgical mask while you are with us. There are also some situations when you may be required to wear a mask: 
  • If you have symptoms of a respiratory illness, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, loss of taste or smell or diarrhea, you will be asked to wear a mask.
  • There may also be some instances where visitors will be required to don a mask when visiting a patient in isolation or if the patient is under protective measures.

Thank you to everyone for being flexible and continuing to be responsible visitors. 

If you are planning to visit a loved one but have symptoms of respiratory illness, including a cough, fever, sore throat, muscle pain or shortness of breath, please consider connecting with your loved one at another time or in a different manner, such as through phone calls or virtual visits on your smartphone or tablet. Free surgical/procedural masks will remain available at entrances. Thank you for helping us protect our patients and staff.
Many other members of the health care team, health care business and health care learning communities also require access to our facility to support the work we do for patients. Our Visitor Welcoming Policy, developed in accordance with New York State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), stays true to our core principles of following the data and the science while always maintaining our focus on what is best for our patients, our staff and the community.

Inpatient visitation hours are 8am - 8pm, two visitors at a time.
