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.
Effective Wednesday, March 23, 2021
Visiting Hours: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., daily for inpatient units, and 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily for COVID-positive or suspected patients.
The safety of our patients and associates, particularly the majority who belong to at-risk populations, remains our highest priority. Thus, we must continuously seek to reduce COVID-19 exposure risk in our care sites and other facilities.
Our limited visitation policy now allows TWO visitors at a time (ages 12 and up) for inpatients who do not have or are not suspected of having COVID-19. Exceptions can be granted for end-of-life situations. Women and Family patients may have TWO DESIGNATED visitors throughout their stay.
Knowing how important it is for you to see your loved ones, our Visitor Policy for our patients with COVID or with suspected COVID, has been updated to allow for one visitor (over age 18) for one hour per day, during the visiting hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., with the last appointment at 6 p.m. Please work with staff from the unit to schedule.
Please contact the main unit numbers to schedule:
3 West: 303-425-8512
Intensive Care Unit (ICU): 303-425-2100
Neuro Critical Care Unit (NCC): 303-467-4700
Appointments are required in order for our staff to provide and assist our visitors with the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and to keep everyone safe. Please note that vaccination status does not change any of these guidelines.
