Visitor Policy Post Pandemic

Under NYS guidelines outlined by Gov. Cuomo, visitors will be allowed to return to Community Memorial Hospital under strict protocols outlined by the Hospital to protect all that enter our building and our Health Centers.

As a result, it is necessary for our Hospital and Health Centers to institute precautionary measures to ensure that our institutions are safe for our patients, their families, and friends, as well as our healthcare workers.  We have updated our visitor policy to reflect these precautionary measures. These may change at any time due to Covid-19 outbreaks.
