Visitation policies have changed at our hospitals, nursing homes and medical practices due to COVID-19.

Please protect the health and safety of our patients, residents, and employees by following these guidelines:

Hospitals:

All visitors are required to wear masks. Please remain in the room with the patient and limit travel inside the hospital to the cafeteria and vending machine areas.

Health & Rehabilitation Centers

Our health and rehabilitation centers currently allow visitation by families and friends of patients.  We kindly ask that all visitors follow these guidelines in order to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19:

  • Perform frequent hand hygiene, including when entering and exiting facility
  • Wear a face covering or mask (covering mouth and nose)
  • Based on CDC guidelines, physically distance at least six feet between people
  • Consider COVID-19 testing 2-3 days prior to visiting
  • Receiving a COVID-19 vaccination is highly recommended
  • Notify the facility if you test positive for COVID-19, develop symptoms of COVID-19, or are instructed to quarantine/isolate within 48 hours of your in-person visit

The safety of our residents, staff and visitors at these centers is our top priority in our fight against COVID-19:
