March 20, 2020
To help minimize exposure to infectious or communicable diseases we are NOT ALLOWING VISITORS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE effective March 20, 2020.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but feel it is in the patients and our critical healthcare provider’s best interest. Exceptions will be made on our family care services (L&D and Pediatrics), End-of-Life situations, and visitors essential to the patients care (translation, discharge needs, dementia care, etc.).
Staying in touch with family members is important and we encourage you to use phone, email, text, Skype and Facebook. Flowers, gifts, cards or other remembrances we ask to be delivered to the patient’s home if possible.

The safety of our community and that of our providers is critical to ensure you receive quality medical care. Our hospital, physicians and employees have proactively prepared to respond and provide care related to the new coronavirus, COVID-19.
We need your help to minimize exposure to infectious or communicable diseases.
Only well, essential visitors such as immediate family, partner or significant other ages 18 and older may visit patients. If someone has traveled from a high-risk area for COVID-19, had contact with a person known to be infected with COVID-19, and cough, fever or difficulty breathing, they will not be allowed to visit unless seeking medical care themselves. The limit of visitors is one at a time. Patients in isolation will have additional visitor restrictions. The Main Entrance will be limited to Monday through Friday from 7 am- 5 pm. After 5 pm and on weekends all visitors must enter through the Emergency Department only.
