- Hand sanitizer is available throughout our facility; please use it regularly during your visits. Be sure to use sanitizer before and after entering a patient’s room.

Certain patient care areas are unique in regards to visitors.
Intensive Care and Cardiovascular Units
One visitor is allowed in the patient room at a time during the visiting hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Patients in our Behavioral Health Unit are allowed one visitor between 6 and 8 p.m.
Patients in labor may have two support people, one of whom may be a doula, in their delivery room. Two visitors at a time are allowed during visiting hours for patients who are postpartum.
For patients in delivery who test positive for COVID-19, a partner who is asymptomatic may accompany the mother with no COVID-19 test required. The partner will be required to eat and isolate in the patient’s room, and to wear a mask at all times, even while sleeping. If the partner is symptomatic, they will be asked to stay home.
There may be situations where exceptions will need to be made; arrangements may be made by the nursing units.
Outpatient Areas and Emergency Department
Individuals coming to the hospital for an outpatient procedure/testing or the Emergency Department are allowed one support person/companion that is 18 or older. All support persons are expected to remain in designated areas, wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
