Gouverneur Residents and Visitors

Visiting or Staying at Our Facility

Patients have the right to designate any visitors, including a spouse, domestic partner, a same sex domestic partner, another family member, or a friend to be their designated support person. The facility does not restrict, limit, or otherwise deny visitation privileges based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. Patients may withdraw or deny consent to visitation to anyone at any time.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Gouverneur Skilled Nursing Facility Admission Process

Choosing the right type of care for a loved one – along with decisions about the cost of care – can often seem overwhelming. We recognize that the transition of going from a home, assisted living, or a hospital setting into a Skilled Nursing Facility can be a difficult one, both financially and emotionally. Our staff is here to help make this transition as smooth as possible for the resident and family.

We are here to answer your questions and walk you through the admission process, as well as answer any of your questions about insurance and the Medicare and Medicaid programs available to assist residents. You can reach us at 646-694-6680 (option 3) or email GouverneurAdmissions@nychhc.org.

We also encourage potential residents and/or family members to schedule a tour of our facility by calling 212-441-5000.
