Mercy Medical Center Temporarily Stops All Hospital Visitation Beginning March 20

Posted on: March 23, 2020

Mercy Medical Center joins hospitals around the state and country by temporarily stopping allhospital visitation, effective Friday, March 20, to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Additionally, to be consistent with recommended guidelines, Mercy Maternity patients will be allowed only (1) support person. That (1) support person must be the same person throughout the stay. The support person may come and go as needed, with proper screening, but cannot be switched. These measures are being implemented to protect the health and safety of Mercy Medical Center patients, employees, and physicians, and will begin Friday, March 20 at 3 p.m.

For Mercy STATCAREs, physician practices, and outpatient locations, patients are asked to come to appointments alone, if possible. One person is allowed to accompany each patient to an appointment on an as-needed basis.

Mercy Medical Center recognizes that interacting with family and friends can be helpful to the healing process and strongly encourages everyone to utilize other forms of support for their loved ones, such as phone calls and video chats on cell phones or other mobile devices.
