In order to protect our patients and employees from possible exposure to infection we are implementing the following visitor guidelines.


We are temporarily suspending all routine in-person visits to our hospitalized patients.  We encourage everyone to use alternative ways of interacting with hospitalized patients including phone calls, FaceTime, Skype and other means.

Note exceptions are as follows:

  • We understand that sometimes its crucial to have a family sitter or caretaker present when the patient is undergoing a critical life threatening procedure or it may be deemed valuable for the patient to have appropriate family caregiver oversight.  One caretaker may be allowed on a case-by-case basis for special circumstances such as:
    • patients who have altered mental status or special needs where a caregiver provides needed attention to improve patient safety.  These exceptions to the visitation policy will be made on a case by case basis by clinical leaders along with allowing visitors for critically ill patients who are at the end of life.
    • pediatric patients (under the age of 18), two parents or guardians will be allowed to visit
  • All allowed visitors must be 15 years or older.
  • No visitors are allowed in the Behavioral Health Unit.

Each visitor that meets the exceptions listed above must have their temperature checked at the entrance to the facility and will also be asked health screening questions. 

If the visitor has a fever or answers "yes" to the health screening questions they will be denied access to the facility.  In addition, visitors will not be allowed to leave and reenter the facility during the day.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.
