Visiting Hours at Garnet Health Medical Center

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.

Please note that virtual video visits can easily be arranged so family and love ones can remain in contact while hospitalized. To arrange a video visit, please speak with your nurse or the Patient Advocacy department, at: 845-333-1164

Visitor Management System

Garnet Health Medical Center utilizes a Visitor Management System in the main lobby to provide a more accurate head count of who and how many visitors are in the hospital in case of an emergency. All visitors will need to show valid ID upon entering the hospital and the new hi-tech ID card scanning system will produce a visitor badge that must be worn at all times.
