Patient & Visitor Information
In response to the end of the COVID-19 emergency declaration, our hospital visitor hours are being restored to full visitor access to create a patient and family-centered healing environment. Effective February 13, 2023:

Visitor access is limited to the patient room, lobby, healing garden, designated waiting areas and our cafeteria.
- Pediatrics: Up to two support persons may visit at the same time.
- NICU/PICU: Up to two support persons may visit at the same time.
Labor and Delivery: Up to two support persons may visit at the same time.

- That visitor will be able to wait in the hospital during the procedure.
COVID positive patients: one visitor at a time, no more than two visitors per day.
- COVID patient visitor PPE: May wear surgical mask. If visitor opts for N-95, staff will teach visitor how to perform seal check. Gown, gloves and eye protection required.
- Visitation for COVID positive patients may be limited or restricted due to infection control risks (i.e., COVID patient undergoing aerosol-generating procedure, visitors not adhering to PPE or infection prevention practices, ongoing outbreak).
Without exception, every visitor must:
- Wear a well-fitted mask with good filtration (N95, KF94, KN95 or surgical masks are preferred over cloth face coverings) at all times.
- Receive proper screening and wear proper PPE when they are in the facility.
- Physically distance from staff and other patients/visitors that are not part of their group at all times.
