Extenuating circumstances will be allowed on a case-by-case basis including pediatric patients and Comfort Cares patients.

To Stay Connected With Your Loved Ones:

With our current Limited Visitor Policy, we are allowing family and friends to visit loved ones through the windows of our facilities, with patient permission.
 
To visit in the way, patients can provide their room number to family/friends. Visitors can utilize the map on this page to find their loved one’s room. Proper social distancing should always be followed, and visitation should be kept to a minimum number of people.
 
We are also encouraging patients to utilize their cell phones for phone calls or video conferencing with loved ones. Cell phones/tablets can be dropped off at the front desk if patients do not have them with them upon admission, and nurses can help patients place phone/video calls. *If bringing a phone – make sure to label it and bring a charger.
