Important hospital information during COVID-19

For safety reasons, there are no visitors allowed in our emergency center, operating and procedure areas and for any patient with COVID-19. All other patients are allowed one adult visitor per patient, per day. Exceptions to these policies include: 

  • Newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Birth center patients: Two support persons, including a doula (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
  • For compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)

We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19.

We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or setting up Google Duo (PDF). Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.

If you need in-person or emergency care, don’t delay. We’re open and ready to care for you, with rigorous safety and cleaning protocols in place to help keep you healthy. To see if you should be tested for COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 testing page.
