Effective Monday, May 18th, CHI Saint Joseph Health are relaxing the temporary visitation policy and restrictions in place at their facilities. The following changes and guidelines are designed to protect patients, staff and community.

One designated visitor will now be allowed for patients admitted to the hospital, labor and delivery patients (birthing partner) in maternity units and for end-of-life care. The patient’s designated support person should remain only in the patient room and avoid entering and exiting the facility as much as possible.

All patients, visitors, employees and health care providers will be screened at entrances, including temperature checks. Anyone entering the building should wear a mask at all times. Visitors should perform frequent hand-washing and follow good respiratory hygiene while in the facility.

The zero visitor policy remains in effect for physician offices and clinics of the CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group and the CHI Saint Joseph Health – Cancer Care Centers, with some exceptions.

If you have an appointment, please check with your provider before leaving home for any special instructions. Patients should contact their regular health care provider by phone first if they are experiencing symptoms like cough, low-grade fever or other respiratory issues.
