Patient guidelines

To help keep our patients and communities safe, we’ve updated some of our patient and visitor policies.

Safety and security

We’re dedicated to keeping you safe and secure.

  • Security procedures: To keep you safe, access to Methodist Hospital campus buildings is restricted between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. After-hours access is provided via intercom communications and our Security Dispatch screens every visitor.
  • Valuables and safekeeping: We ask that you send your valuables home. However, if you have a valuable item you want to store at the hospital, please store them in the hospital safe managed by the Safety and Security team.
  • Preventing spread of infections: In order to limit the spread of germs like coronavirus (COVID-19), we currently have reduced visitor policies. See above for more information.

We are committed to a safe, respectful and healing environment.

We do not allow threats, aggression, abuse, harassment or discrimination toward anyone for any reason. We will take action to ensure the safety of all patients, staff and guests.
