No Visitor Access

The support of family and friends is needed most while we are sick or injured. That’s why it’s a gut-wrenching decision to restrict visitors.

Unfortunately, the rapid surge of the coronavirus delta variant is forcing us to restrict visitors in order to ensure the safety of our patients, providers and staff. Except in limited cases, no visitors are allowed at this time in our hospital and clinics. Visitors that meet the criteria of our limited exceptions will be screened for illness and risk factors and restricted to their patient’s room.

There are very limited exceptions to this policy. ONE adult visitor is allowed only for:

  • Guiding the developmentally challenged
  • Helping those with limited comprehension or mobility
  • Interpreter services
  • Helping the hearing or visually impaired
  • Supervising a minor patient
  • Patients visiting maternal fetal medicine
  • Patients in the ER once taken to a room

During labor up to two support people are allowed. After delivery, one visitor for duration of stay. No one under 18 except mother and partner.

For hospice and end-of-life discussions, special accommodations are available. Please contact the patient’s care team for more information.

How to stay connected

The support of loved ones is incredibly important to recovery. Please use the telephone and video chat (FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp, etc.) to stay connected. We also keep tablets handy to help patients visit remotely with friends and family.

Patient and Visitor Guidelines

  • Waiting rooms are for patients use only.
  • Wear a mask at all times while in the facility, even if you are vaccinated. This includes when in the room of a patient.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Sanitize hands when entering the facility, before and after leaving a patient room, and after masking. Wash with soap and water for 20 seconds or clean hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Please make your visit brief and do not visit other areas of the hospital.
