As global and domestic cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) rise, we have implemented additional measures at our hospitals and clinics to protect the health of everyone we serve.
As the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve, we are committed to maintaining a safe environment for our patients and employees. We also understand the importance of support to the healing process. At this time we are allowing ONE (1) visitor per patient each day except for pediatrics and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) allowing TWO (2) parents or guardians. The guidelines for visitation are listed below.
Visiting hours: 6 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily
Support personnel are able to accompany individuals with disabilities who are seeking medical care.
**Failure to following these expectations will result in visitation privileges being revoked**
People with disabilities (which is defined by the ADA as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment) who require help with the provision of medical or behavioral health care, activities of daily living, speaking for the patient or keeping the patient safe, may have a designated assistance person.
