New Visitor Policy

We understand the importance of patients having access to their loved ones while receiving care at Providence hospitals. To protect the health of our patients and caregivers, and as a safety precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are pleased we can now allow one visitor per patient per day (see restrictions below) in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Visitor Policy

  • One visitor may visit a patient provided social distancing can be accomplished and the visitor complies with hospital visitor guidelines. For Labor and Delivery patients, a doula may also be present in addition to one visitor/support person. Labor and Delivery patients must make prior arrangements with the hospital and the doula must comply with hospital PPE and infection control guidelines.
  • Visitors do not need to be designated in advance by the patient; however, each visitor will be screened for fever and COVID-19 symptoms. Each visitor must wear a face covering at all times within the hospital, maintain physical distancing and wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) as appropriate while in the patient's room.
  • Visitor movement in the hospital will be limited to the patient’s room. For example, visitors should not walk around in hallways and must go directly to and from the patient's room.

We are pleased that our patients can now have loved ones visit them in the hospital. For everyone’s safety, please follow the guidelines above.
