Visitation Guidelines for Providence St. Joseph Hospital, Orange

Effective February 8, 2023

At Providence St. Joseph Hospital, we are your partner in care. We understand that the connection with family and friends is a vital part of the healing and recovery process. To provide total mind, body and spiritual care, visitors are welcomed in our hospital. For our patients, our hospital is a place for treatment and recovery. Please keep this in mind during your visit.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) no longer requires screening or testing of visitors in health care settings. All visitors must be free of fever and cold/flu-like symptoms. 

Visitation hours are 8 a.m.–10 p.m. Behavioral Health Services visitation hours are 6 p.m.–7 p.m.

Visitors must wear a surgical mask at all times.

Children aged 12 and older are allowed with adult supervision.

Patients are allowed two visitors at a time. There are no restrictions on the total number of visitors per day. You may need to wait until other visitors leave before you can see the patient. When possible, coordinate visits with others, such as family members. 

Visitors for COVID-19 patients are allowed and must wear an N95 respirator, face shield, gown and gloves at all times in a patient room. Visitors must check-in at the nurse’s station before entering the room, where they will receive this essential PPE and education.

We provide exceptions for end-of-life and other critical situations; please contact a nurse if you would like to make a request or discuss an exception.
