Visiting Hours

Visiting Hours

If you suspect you have COVID-19, please call ahead before you visit one of our locations so that our teams can prepare the necessary precautions. View our full visitor guidelines below for location specific instructions. Thank you.

The safety of our visitors, patients, employees, and physicians is our highest priority.

To decrease exposure and limit the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), visitation to hospital patients is being restricted. Please review the information in the drop down below from the location you plan on visiting.

While the CDC has recently adjusted general masking guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals, a recommendation remains that everyone wears masks when they are in a health care setting. Therefore, we ask that all our patients and visitors continue to be masked at all times within our facilities.

For months we have implemented visitor restrictions as a strategy to mitigate the introduction of COVID-19 into our hospital. The current risk of COVID-19 is being managed with proper mask wearing, maintaining safe physical distances, and other infection prevention measures. 

Additionally, we are seeing declining cases and changes to the virus. In light of these factors, visitor restrictions have been lifted. Visitors must be healthy, wear a mask at all times, and follow other infection prevention expectations. These expectations are intended for all visitors, regardless of vaccine status.

The following guidelines for visitors entering the facility are as follows: 

  • All visitors allowed in the building must be screened for any COVID-19 concerns or symptoms.
  • Visitors that are allowed in the building will have to wear a mask at ALL TIMES.
    • If a visitor is in the building to see a COVID positive patient, he/she must wear a gown, gloves, and a mask at all times while visiting the patient.
  • Visitors must stay in the room with their loved one at all times.
