Updated visitor policy for obstetric patients

An adjustment has been made to the visitor policy. Effective Monday, Nov. 30, 2020, obstetric patients may have one designated visitor per day in both the inpatient and ambulatory setting. The visitor must remain the same for the duration of the stay. The decision to limit obstetric visitors from two to one was made to address hospital room and clinic capacity limitations in those units as the community infection rate rises. This is a temporary adjustment and will be re-evaluated in mid-December. The same visitor adjustment will be applied — permanently — to obstetric patients who are COVID-19 positive.
