Visitor policy

We are committed to providing a safe environment for our patients, physicians, employees and visitors.

Universal masking remains in effect and additional PPE may be required. All visitors will need to comply with these policies.

Non-COVID-19 patients

Non-COVID patients are allowed one visitor at a time during visiting hours.

  • Visiting hours are 8:00am – 8:00pm
  • Visitors must be 18 years of age or older
  • Visitors must pass the entrance screening
  • Any patient seeking emergency care may have one visitor. (At the hospital’s discretion, each hospital may, from time to time, further limit this depending on patient volume within the hospital.)
  • Labor and Delivery: Two visitors allowed over 18 years old
  • Post-Partum/Antepartum: Two visitors allowed over 18 years old
  • One visitor may remain overnight for the following services or circumstances:
    • Pediatrics under 18 years old
    • NICU
    • Laboring mothers
    • Patient advocates for elderly, disabled or impaired patients
  • End-of-life care and other special circumstances will be addressed on an individual basis.

COVID-19 patients

COVID-19 patients or those suspected of having COVID-19 will be allowed only one visitor per day, during visiting hours. Special circumstances will be addressed on an individual basis. Each hospital will have a process to ensure proper safety and PPE protocols are in place for these visits.

*Visitation may be denied if an attending physician determines in-person visitation with the patient may lead to the transmission of an infectious agent that poses a serious community health risk.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
