We strive to provide a supportive and healing environment for our patients. Our open visitation guidelines reflect that effort while balancing the need to assure our patients have the opportunity to rest and recover.

Please consider:

  • Not visiting a loved one if you're not feeling well; have a cough, fever or runny nose.  All patients receive free WiFi and phone access. Keep in touch using technology and help your loved one heal.
  • Visiting guidelines at CVPH can change temporarily to address community or facility-specific health concerns. During flu or RSV season, for example, visitation may be limited.
  • Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our patients, your loved one.  Should visitation interfere with the care of our patients, we reserve the right to limit it.
  • Children under the age of 12 should be escorted by adult and should not visit if they are ill.
