Temporary Change to Visitor Policy for Transitional Care and Subacute Units

Visitation to patients in Subacute units and Transitional Care located at our South Campus (1633 S. Court Street) is allowed for 30 minute visits that must be scheduled in advance. Up to 2 visitors from the same household may visit per patient. Visits will take place either outdoors or in a large communal space such as a dining room or activity room, not in the patient room. All visitors must wear a mask and will be screened for symptoms upon entrance to the building. A staff member will supervise each visit to ensure proper mask use and social distancing. Visitation days are dependent upon the staff availability and may vary at each campus.
