Memorial Medical Center implements no visitor policy
In an effort to prioritize patient safety and health, Memorial Medical Center has made the difficult decision to implement a no visitor policy starting Wednesday, March 18 to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, no visitors will be allowed entrance into the facility.
-For Family Birthplace patients: one healthy support person is allowed.
-For pediatric patients: one healthy caregiver is allowed.
-For vulnerable adults: one healthy caregiver is allowed, if required.
For each of the exceptions, only the same healthy visitor is allowed for the duration of the patient’s stay.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and Memorial Medical Center will take additional steps to help control the spread of COVID-19 as necessary. We recognize interacting with friends and family can be helpful in the healing process and strongly encourage everyone to use other forms of support such as phone calls and video chats.
For those that have flu or cold-like symptoms, please stay home from work or school, and practice social distancing. If symptoms worsen, or you have any concerns, please call your primary care provider before visiting a doctor’s office, urgent care or emergency department.
