Expectations of Visitors:

Having the support of a trusted friend or family member is important to each patient’s healing. A support person can ask questions the patient may not think of, write down information and instructions, and interact with providers and clinical staff.  If you are visiting or accompanying a patient, please help us maintain a safe environment by respecting our visitor guidelines. Visitors who do not adhere to the visitor expectations will be unable to visit.

  • In order to protect our patients, do NOT visit if you are experiencing a fever, sore throat, respiratory illness, diarrhea, rash, influenza, or other signs of illness.
  • Please keep noise levels to a minimal to help maintain a comfortable, private, quiet environment that promotes healing.
  • Depending on the current COVID community transmission level, visitors may be required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while inside the hospital. Signs will be posted if masks are required.
  • When visiting a patient in isolation, visitors must wear required personal protective equipment (PPE).

Flowers & Balloons
