Visitors

COVID-19 patient and visitor guidelines as of May 18, 2020

Patients will now be allowed one visitor or support person in all of our facilities, with the exception of COVID-19 patients and those in our long term Skilled Nursing Unit. To safely make this change of allowing visitors back into our facilities, it’s absolutely critical that everyone follow the guidelines and restrictions that are now in place.

We know that having a loved one with you when you are sick or in the hospital is an important part of the healing process. With your help, we will take every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors, and our team members.
