With the continuing spread of COVID-19 in our community, we are working closely with state and local health authorities to care for affected individuals while also taking steps to limit person-to-person spread within the communities we serve. Please check back often as we continue to share updates and resources as the situation develops.

As our county’s COVID rates continue to increase, we have made an update to our Visitor Guidelines regarding our Family Birthplace effective Monday, July 11, 2022.
Visitors must comply with PPE requirements. This includes mandatory masks on campus and other measures may be required upon arrival. Visitors might be excluded from having visitation privileges if they fail to pass the screening process. This policy will replace all other Visitor Guidelines (last updated 2.21.22) until further notice.

- Outpatients Allowed One (1) Visitor Per Day Per Patient (please see link for details)
- Inpatients Hospital-Wide Allowed Two (2) Visitors at a time during visitation hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with some exceptions.
- Family BirthPlace Patients Allowed Two (2) Visitors at a time. Children under 17 are not permitted in the unit at this time.
- Emergency Department patients may have One (1) Visitor at a time in the patient exam room due to spacing requirements.
- Pediatric patients may have two guardians whether they are in the ED or Pediatric unit for their care.
Centennial Medical Group Clinics
Centennial Medical Group clinics will temporarily limit visitor access at its clinics except for visitors accompanying patients needing assistance. Examples of patients who may require assistance include children and patients with physical or cognitive impairments. In addition, visitors will be permitted in those clinical situations where a visitor will be integral to the decision making and information exchange process.
We want to thank anyone affected by these restrictions for their understanding and help in keeping our patients, caregivers and communities safe and healthy.
