Visiting Hours at Garnet Health Medical Center – Catskills

Garnet Health recognizes that patients need the support of family and friends while they are in the hospital or visiting for an outpatient appointment or procedure. We welcome visitors and request that you follow our visitation guidelines in an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible. It is required that all visitors wear hospital issued masks, provided upon your arrival, the entire time of your visit and that you remain socially distant and practice good hand hygiene often. Thank you for your cooperation.
