Visitor Policy

Effective December 1, 2021

Exceptions may be made in certain circumstances:

Pediatric care (ONE parent/guardian will be permitted).

Maternity and Labor and Delivery Units (ONE significant other/support person can visit).

Special Care Nursery (TWO parents/support persons can visit).

Other extenuating circumstances (such as hospice and end-of-life care) will also be considered based on the  best interest and needs of the individual patient. All exceptions must be approved by the care team.

Patients with physical or intellectual disabilities (ONE support person over the age of 18 is permitted). Support persons must pass our screening process, and there are no restrictions on visiting hours for support persons.     

Emergency Department: No visitors will be allowed in these areas or the waiting rooms.

Outpatient Appointments: No visitors will be allowed in these areas or the waiting rooms. Certain approved escorts will be permitted in certain circumstances with permission from
the clinical staff.

Surgical Patients: No visitors unless the parent of a child/minor having a procedure. Certain approved escorts will be allowed in certain circumstances with permission from the care team. Approved escorts will then be asked  to wait outside of the hospital until the recovery period is complete and the patient is ready to depart.

Patients and Essential Visitors: Upon arrival, all patients and essential visitors will be screened for wellness and COVID-19 exposure.

Mask must be worn

Visitors will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of their visit and are encouraged to bring their own masks; surgical masks will be provided to visitors who don’t have their own. Scarves, bandannas, and handkerchiefs are not allowed. Refusal to wear a mask will result in the revocation of visitation privileges.

While we are sensitive to the difficulties facing loved ones of hospitalized patients, our health care team must keep our patients and staff safe during this unprecedented health emergency.

We encourage family members and friends to use alternative ways to interact with their loved ones, including  phone calls, Facetime and Skype.
