Syracuse VA put into place a temporary hospital visitation policy because of the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Onondaga County, NY. We are now increasing these restrictions to ensure the safety of Veterans and staff, and to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Visitation is only granted for patients in end-of-life and comfort care situations. Please contact the nursing staff by calling (315) 425-4400-- and ask the operator to connect you with the inpatient unit charge nurse.
Syracuse VA is committed to the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve. We strongly encourage the use of electronic methods to stay connected with loved ones using telephone and video calls.
We will regularly re-evaluate these visitor restrictions as we receive updates about COVID-19.
