Updated Visitation Guidelines Effective Tuesday, May 25

Date: 05/24/2021

As we balance the need of patients and their families with the safety concerns for everyone who enters our facility, we will continue to adjust our policies as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 change. Below please see our Visitation Guidelines that are effective on May 25, 2021. All visitors will be required to go through a screening process that includes a temperature check. Please do not visit if you are feeling sick.

One Visitor Allowed Daily for Inpatients
Inpatients will be allowed one visitor per day between the hours of 12 and 6 pm. While only one person will be allowed per day, that designated person can change each day. The visitor cannot leave the patient room during the visit.

Everyone entering our facility must wear a mask provided by this facility for the duration of their time in the hospital. If a patient is accepting a visitor, the patient must also wear a mask for the duration of the visit.

While visitation is only permitted at a specific time and in limited numbers, there are exceptions below. Where they are allowed, visitors must be at least age 18.

Acute Care Unit
One visitor allowed between 12 and 6 pm. We do allow an exception for up to four visitors (two at a time) for patients who are at end-of-life. Please note: Any patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 cannot have in-person visitors. Alternative options for communications for all inpatients are available in order to keep families connected (i.e. Zoom).

Day Surgery
One visitor may accompany the patient for the procedure and stay in the patient’s pre-op room until discharge. If the visitor/companion is unable to stay the entire time, they may leave, and we will bring the patient to the exit once recovery is complete for the driver to take them home.

Birthing Center
Obstetric patients may have one person accompany them for the birthing experience. That person may leave once each day and return. A second individual may visit each day between 12 pm and 6 pm. 

Emergency Department
One visitor is allowed to accompany patients in the emergency department. However, any patients suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 cannot have in-person visitors.  

Outpatient Medical Practices/Offices/Walk-in Care 
One visitor may accompany the patient at our outpatient practices.  

  • One parent or guardian is allowed for a minor patient.
  • One person is allowed for a patient who needs help with mobility or communication with the care team.

Thank You! We understand that family support is an important part of a patient’s well-being. We are doing all we can to best protect those in our care as well as all in our community. Thank you for understanding.
