Patients & Visitors

As we balance the need of patients and their families with the safety concerns for everyone who enters the hospital and all our locations, we will continue to adjust our policies as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 change. This policy will be adjusted further if circumstances change. 

Below please see our Visitation Guidelines that are effective on November 12, 2021.

Acute Care Unit: Visitation is temporarily suspended due to concerns about COVID-19. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis only for patients at end-of-life status or in swing-bed status. We are dedicated to helping patients stay connected to their families through alternative options for communications, such as Zoom. Please contact the Nurse Leader.

Everyone entering our facility must wear a mask provided by this facility for the duration of their time in the hospital.

Day Surgery Unit: Due to space limitations in the waiting room, we are asking that visitors not remain on-site during the procedure. We will keep visitors updated and informed via telephone. The only exceptions are one parent or guardian for a minor or if the patient requires their help with communication with the care team.

Emergency Department: Each patient is allowed one visitor. Due to space limitations, visitors must remain at the bedside at all times. If the visitor must leave the department, they will not be allowed readmission. Visitors that are allowed must wear a hospital-issued mask at all times. However, if the patient is presenting with COVID-19 symptoms, no visitation is allowed until the patient has been deemed COVID-19 negative.

Outpatient Provider Offices: We are currently not allowing visitors to accompany patients to appointments at our outpatient practices. The only exceptions are one parent or guardian for a minor or if the patient requires their help with communication with the care team.

Lab, Imaging, Rehab Offices/Areas: No visitors are allowed in the waiting room or in the treatment areas of the lab, imaging, or rehabilitation with limited exceptions. The only exceptions are one parent or guardian for a minor or if the patient requires their help with 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.
