Our hospital's current visitor information
Visits from relatives and friends play an important part in patient recovery. However, a visit can be tiring for a person who is ill. In the best interest of the patient, it is suggested that visitors limit the length of their stay. A designated family member can assist by coordinating visits for family and friends.
In most cases, the patient's time, especially early in the day, is scheduled for receiving care and treatment. If a morning visit is planned, we suggest that you call ahead to make sure the patient is in his or her room and that there are no planned procedures. No visitors will be allowed in the room during treatments or while a doctor's or nurse's care is in progress. Visitors may be asked to step outside your room during these times.
All visitors must:
- Be 14 years of age or older
- Pass the self–screening entrance exam
Non–COVID patients are allowed two visitors at a time during visiting hours.
- Visiting hours are 8:00am–8:00pm
One visitor may remain overnight for the following services or circumstances:
- Laboring mothers
- Patient advocates for elderly, disabled or impaired patients
- Undergoing surgery or a procedure
- End–of–life care
COVID–19 patients or those suspected of having COVID–19 will be allowed one visitor per day. Each hospital will have a process to ensure proper safety and PPE protocols are in place for these visits.

Facts and the latest updates about COVID-19 vaccination
See the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) resource page for extensive information and the latest recommendations regarding COVID-19 vaccination.
Why get vaccinated?
Immunization helps save millions of lives every year. Whereas most medicines treat or cure diseases, vaccines can help prevent them by working with your body's natural defenses to build protection. When you receive a vaccine, your immune system responds.
Vaccines prevent more than 20 life-threatening diseases, and help people of all ages live longer, healthier lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that globally, immunization currently prevents between 2 and 3 million deaths every year from diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, influenza and measles.
COVID-19 vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Other steps, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask and staying at least six feet away from others, may help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC's recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.
