Our highest priority is the health and safety of our patients, visitors,
employees, and physicians. We use safety standards to protect everyone
who comes to Valley Presbyterian Hospital and are taking additional precautions
for the COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our teams are using infection prevention
protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and
are working closely with local, state and federal health agencies to take
steps to limit the spread of the virus and care for those who need it.
Patient & Visitor Policy Update
We have restricted visitation to our hospital.
All patients and visitors will be screened at designated entry points,
including the Emergency Department.
A "No Visitor" policy will be in effect with a few exceptions
All visitors and patients entering the hospital are required to wear a
hospital-issued mask. It must be worn at all times. Visit our
Video page for a CDC video on how to wear a mask.
- Patients admitted through the ED who are unable to provide their own medical
history and consent may have one visitor, but only for as long as it takes
to complete the admission.
- Visitors must be a healthy adult, 18 years of age or older.
Visitors should not visit patients at our hospital if you have one or more
symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, have traveled in a
COVID-19 area, or have encountered a person who tested positive for COVID-19 in the
last 14 days.
Patients under COVID-19 investigation are not allowed to have any visitors,
except for parents or guardians in PICU and NICU (see details on our
Visiting Hours page). Other exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for certain
compassionate care reasons.
One visitor will be allowed for our patients in the NICU (parent/guardian
only) and labor unit, as well as for end of life patients. Two parents
or guardians will be allowed for patients in our PICU unit with restrictrions
(see details on our
Visiting Hours page).
As of May 11, we have resumed elective surgeries for patients. Please note that the patient and visitor policies above remain in effect.
