Current visitor policy

In light of the recent surge of COVID-19 throughout the county and state, we have restricted our visitor policy.

As of Tuesday, November 24, 2020:

  • Laboring mothers are allowed one adult visitor for the duration of her labor, day or night
  • Pediatric and NICU patients will be allowed two visitors (visitor must be a patient’s parent, legal guardian or identified support person)
  • One adult visitor, 18 years or older, per patient who is at or approaching “end of life” status
  • Surgical patient visitors will be allowed to visit for 2 hours pre and post-op
  • All visitors must be 18 years or older under all circumstances
  • No other visitors will be permitted

Exceptions may be made for extenuating circumstances on a case by case basis.

Hospital entrance screening

Hospital staff will continue to pre-screen all visitors that strictly fit the description above. We request that each visitor follow the guidelines listed below:

  • All visitors will be screened and temperatures will be taken
  • All visitors must wear masks covering their nose and mouth at all times while in the hospital and in patient rooms
  • All visitors must apply alcohol based hand sanitizer upon entry and exit to the hospital and the patient’s room
  • All visitors must remain inside the patient’s room during the entire visit
  • Visitors are allowed only one entry and exit to the hospital per day
  • Cafeteria is closed to the public, however the coffee cart in the lobby is open for limited hours

Each visitor will be required to wear an identifying badge indicating they have been appropriately screened. Individuals with respiratory symptoms or other risk factors for COVID-19, such as travel or exposure, will be respectfully asked to refrain from visiting altogether.

Visitors that don’t meet the criteria listed above, will be asked to refrain from visiting and utilize alternative methods of communication with patients who are under observation or test positive for COVID-19.

We realize these are stressful, unique times and appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Thank you for your help in keeping our environment safe for all patients, families and healthcare staff.

Testing information

The health and safety of our patients is our top priority, and our hospital continues to be a safe place to receive care. Multiple patients have asked or requested information on what to do if they are sick, or have COVID-19 concerns.

  • If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or proceed to our Emergency Department.
  • If you are presenting with potential COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your physician for instruction on medical care and potential testing.
