Continuing Treatment of Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic
CVIM is proud to have stayed open to care for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to remain agile to meet the changing needs of our community and have adapted our procedures to follow recommendations of the CDC and Government officials.
Testing of our patients for Corona Virus is not currently available at CVIM. The recommendation for people with mild respiratory illness is to remain at home unless they are having difficulty breathing or serious symptoms requiring possible hospitalization.
PATIENTS WHO HAVE HAD A FEVER, COUGH, ANY RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS, HAVE TRAVELED INTERNATIONALLY OR DOMESTICALLY IN THE LAST 14 DAYS, OR HAVE HAD POSSIBLE CONTACT WITH A PERSON WITH CONFIRMED COVID-19, MUST RESCHEDULE ANY CVIM APPOINTMENTS THEY HAVE MADE.
During this especially difficult time, we hope our supporters will continue to do their part by making financial contributions or gift-in-kind donations such as PPE supplies to help your uninsured friends and neighbors of Centre County.

Run for CVIM Challenge
March 15, 2021 Kickoff
In 2002, John Domico ran the Boston Marathon on behalf of CVIM raising $3,500. A year later, seven runners going to Boston joined John's fundraising efforts. To date, our marathoners have raised over $720,000 for patient care. The Run for CVIM Challenge sponsored by Mount Nittany Health began this year on March 15.
In order to enable as many people as possible to participate this year and allow maximum flexibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering three options:
1) Pick a race (traditional or virtual) on any date this year and run for CVIM.
2) Create your own solo running event and take a “runfie” photo to document your run.
3) Participate in a “Run for Medicine Relay” at Spring Creek Canyon with two one-mile legs and two three-mile legs (date to be determined).
Sign up to run or sponsor a runner in support of CVIM. Social distancing guidelines will be respected.
As you shop on Amazon throughout the year, you can designate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases be donated to CVIM. Simply enter the Amazon website through the AmazonSmile webpage.
