For Patients

Last updated 3/27/20

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

Starting March 20 at 7:00 am, we will be further restricting 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 as follows:
  • One visitor will be allowed for our patients in labor, pediatric, and neonatal units, as well as end of life patients.
  • 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. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for certain compassionate care reasons.
