Communications with Residents of the Rehabilitation and Nursing Center

UTICA, N.Y. – Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, visits to the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) are prohibited. To allow our residents to continue communicating with their loved ones, we will be setting up Skype appointments.

If interested in setting up a Skype appointment with your loved one, please contact the director of Therapeutic Recreation, Amy Deangelo, at 315-624-8609. She will help with setting up the Skype application and other information specific to your appointment.

Available appointments fall within the following time slots:

  • Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. or 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Limited weekend appointments.

Additionally we would like to reiterate that loved ones must refrain from dropping off any items to our residents as they will not be accepted. These items may be contaminated with the virus and pose a risk to our residents.
