Visiting Hours & Guidelines

To protect our patients and staff, and to comply with a California Department of Public Health order, we are revising our visitation guidelines at Adventist Health locations in the Central Valley.


No inpatient visitors allowed with the following exceptions:

  • End of Life care – one support person
  • Pediatrics – one support person
  • OB Unit – one support person and a doula
  • Patients with disabilities or cognitive impairments – one caregiver

Hanford Medical Pavilion

No visitors allowed with the following exceptions:

  • If a caregiver is needed to escort a patient
  • If a parent is needed to escort an underage patient.

Indoor visitation is only permitted with the following verification:

  • Visitor provides verification that they are fully vaccinated
  • Unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated visitors provide documentation of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test (COVID-19) within the last 72 hours. Tests will NOT be provided by Adventist Health, but may be obtained at local pharmacies.
  • Proof of vaccination MUST be as described in the order.

Cafeterias at hospitals in Hanford, Tulare, Selma and Reedley are closed to visitors.

Visitation guidance in our medical offices and other outpatient facilities, with the exception of the Hanford Medical Pavilion, continues to be one visitor, per patient.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

We appreciate your cooperation. Thank you for your help in protecting our patients, staff and communities.
