In order to protect the health of our communities, and as a safety precaution
to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19, we have instituted visitor
restrictions in accordance with recommendations from the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Governor of California. In addition,
some hospital access points will be consolidated on our campus.
We understand the importance of patients having access to their loved
ones while receiving care at our hospital. At this time, we ask patients
and their families to consider communication through phone and video chat
as their primary means of communication. If an in-person visit is necessary,
the following restrictions will apply:
Outpatient clinics: Patients being seen in an outpatient clinic or setting may be accompanied
by no more than one adult support person.
Inpatient units: To limit the spread of infectious illnesses, in-person visits will not
be allowed. We know the value visitors bring to our patients. At this
time, we encourage patients and their families to communicate through
phone and video chat. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for
For these very limited exceptions, one visitor per patient will be allowed
and must be 18 years or older and be immediate family (or powers of attorney,
guardians, or patient representative) and they will be asked to return
home if they exhibit cold or flu-like symptoms, or have a fever.
We continue to monitor the risk of COVID-19 closely and will make adjustments
to visitor restrictions, as necessary. We appreciate your help in keeping
our patients and employees safe.
