Visitation Policy

Revised Visitor Policy

Updated November 25, 2020

We have revised our visitation policies for the health and safety of our community, patients and families. Beginning Friday, Nov. 27, all visitation is suspended except for patient support persons or family members and/or legal representatives of patients in imminent end-of-life situations.

Hospitals are required to permit a patient support person at the patient bedside for:

  • Patients in Labor & Delivery
  • Pediatric patients
  • Patients with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities
  • Patients with cognitive impairments including dementia

We understand that this is a challenging situation and appreciate your understanding.

Please use the patient’s bedside phone, cell phone, Face Time, Skype, Zoom or other means of communication to help you connect to your loved one during this time. If you have questions, please contact the Department of Patient Advocacy at (631) 444-2880.
