Visiting Phoebe

Visitation Policy

As we continue to monitor the number of COVID-19 cases in our community, we also continue to adapt our policies and procedures as appropriate. As we optimistically – but cautiously – welcome the dramatic decline in new COVID-19 patients in recent weeks, we are changing our visitation.

Visiting Hours: Weekdays 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Inpatient Visitation Guidelines for Non-COVID-19 Patients:

  • Two visitors allowed at a time for each patient.
  • One visitor may stay overnight in a patient’s room.
  • If visiting a patient who has been admitted to the hospital, please enter/exit through the main entrance.
  • If visiting/accompanying a patient for outpatient surgery or an appointment in one of the Medical Towers, please enter/exit through the Medical Tower entrance.
  • Visitors sign in and out at the main entrance.
  • All visitors will be screened for a fever prior to entering the facility.
  • All visitors are required to wear a multi-layer mask when in the facility. If you do not have one, one will be provided.
  • Visitors may access cafeteria and concession areas, but otherwise should remain in the clinical unit they are visiting.

Below exceptions may apply:

  • Patients at the end-of-life.
  • Obstetric patients may have one partner and a birth supporter during delivery and one partner and two visitors after delivery during visiting hours.
  • NICU patients may have one birth parent plus a significant other.
  • Minors under age 18 may have two parents or guardians.
  • Patients who require assistance may have one caregiver

Please note: Children under 18 still are not allowed to visit except in end-of-life cases and births of siblings. It is also strongly recommended (for their own safety) that people over age 65, anyone with a chronic medical condition and pregnant women do not visit the hospital except to receive care.

Outpatient Visitation Guidelines:

Patients undergoing a surgery may have one visitor accompany them during their stay. Patients coming for an outpatient test or scan may have one visitor accompany them, if medically necessary.

Emergency Room Visitation:

ER visitation will allow for one visitor per Non-COVID-19 patient.

We appreciate your support and patience as we work to protect our patients, visitors and community. Please know all decisions are made with safety as our top priority and modifications will be made to the visitation policy as appropriate.
