Patients are limited to ONE VISITOR PER PATIENT PER PATIENT STAY in response to the increase of positive COVID-19 cases in the area. This is a change from the visitation policy that was effective on September 22, 2020.

We're expanding our visiting hours for overnight (admitted) patients. The expanded hours are 11 am to 7 pm, seven days/wk. See policy effective July 25, 2020, for details on visitation. This change does not alter the current visitation guidelines for patients at end-of-life, or patients on maternity, pedi, ED, and DSC/OR/PST.

We're expanding our visitor policy to allow overnight (admitted) patients to designate ONE care partner/caregiver to visit them during their Hospital stay during the visiting hours of Monday-Friday 11 am to -8 pm and weekends 10 am to 6 pm.

This change does not alter the current visitation guidelines for patients at end-of-life, or patients on maternity, pedi, ED, DSC/OR/PST and ICU.

- Visitors are asked to stay in the patient’s room and restrict movement to other areas of the Hospital. Acceptable areas to enter are Cafeteria, Gift Shop, Karner Blue Café and public restrooms.
