Visitation PolicyEffective Date: June 8, 2020
Memorial Medical Center recognizes the importance of family support in the healing process and effective June 8th, we will begin allowing one visitor per patient per day. All visitors will be required to clear a health screening and will be provided a mask to wear upon entry and throughout their entire visit. Additional details of the updated visitor policy include:
●Visitation/Guests will be limited to one (16 years or older) per patient per day. This is applicable for all areas of the hospital including inpatients, outpatients, and Emergency Department patients.
