Visitation: Loved ones are welcome again.
June 23, 2021
It’s been a hard year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has faced a number of new challenges as we have worked to protect each other’s health and well-being. Perhaps one of the biggest of those challenges has been separation from others – whether that means forgoing in-person gatherings, grabbing coffee with a friend or visiting a loved one who is receiving care at the hospital.
As we come closer than ever to putting the pandemic behind us, we are pleased to announce that our visitation restrictions are relaxing, and loved ones are welcome again. We know that it has been difficult to be apart from family and friends who are receiving care, and we want to thank you for your patience and understanding while restrictions were in place to protect the health of our patients and staff.
We are so pleased to welcome our patients’ loved ones back to the hospital to visit. Our updated visitor policy can be found below.
It’s been a hard year. Let’s make the next one better…together.
Any visitors who have ANY symptoms of COVID-19 are not allowed to enter.
Hospital & Outpatient Clinics
Each patient is allowed to have two visitors in their room at a time with the exception of the departments listed below.
- NICU: Two visitors (must be age 18+)
- ER: One visitor per patient
- Cancer Center: New patient appointments only
- COVID+ or Rule Out Patients: No visitors unless the patient is end of life or requires a caregiver. Patients requiring a caregiver may have one caregiver stay with them. The caregiver may not leave the room once they have entered, must wear a mask for the entire stay, and must sign the COVID+ caregiver acknowledgement form.
All visitors must undergo hand hygiene and wear a surgical mask (no cloth masks) over the nose and mouth for the duration of the visit. Visitors who are found not wearing a mask during their visit will be asked to leave.
