During this time, it is critical that we protect our patients, as well as staff, clinicians and community. Therefore, we have restricted all visitors to our hospitals and clinics until further notice. Exceptions may be made in advance by the clinical care team to support the goals of care discussions for appropriate patients. Walk-up hospital visitors will not be allowed. More information is available on our Visiting Hours and Guidelines page.
