Visitor Policy

Patient Visitation Procedures*

All visitors must pass COVID-19 Screening before you can visit a patient in the medical center. We know our visitation policy is difficult on families, but it is important to ensure the safety of our patients and employees.

  • Visitors are not allowed for patients with or suspected of having COVID-19, with limited exceptions.
  • One designated visitor per day (family member or guardian) can visit patients located on an inpatient and intensive care unit as well as outpatient areas between 8 am - 8 pm.
  • Hospice, end-of-life, and comfort care situations: up to two visitors at one time.
  • Patients with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and those with cognitive impairment: one visitor.
  • Labor & Delivery: one designated partner supporting a mother in labor may now remain with the mom throughout the hospitalization.
  • NICU: two parents at a time (with patient identification band on parent) throughout the hospitalization.
  • Pediatrics: one parent at a time (with patient identification band on parent) throughout the hospitalization.
  • Minors seeking care in any location: one parent at a time throughout the hospitalization.

*Visitation policy subject to change. Visitation may be adjusted at the discretion of the facility to ensure social distancing is able to be accomplished. A no visitor policy, with end-of-life exceptions, remains in effect for Sub-Acute, Transitional Care Center, and Behavioral Health (Outpatient Behavioral Health Center, Recovery Center and Bridges) per LA County Health Officer order, the above policy only applies to acute care ministries.
