We are taking extra precautions with the safety of patients, visitors and team members in mind. Visitors are limited to one designated visitor for the duration of the stay (for non-COVID-19 patients). All visitors must be screened and check in to receive a visitor badge. This badge must always be visible.
Other family members or friends of the visitor(s) are not permitted to enter the facility or to wait in lobbies, chapels, cafeteria, and/or any other area within the hospital.
- No visitors allowed for COVID-19 patients.
- Visitors will be screened upon entry and receive a badge.
- Visitors may come and go during visitor hours.
- Masks are required for all HonorHealth team members, patients and visitors, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.
- We strongly encourage visitors to observe appropriate hand hygiene guidelines. Gloves are not permitted.
- The patient you’re visiting will also need to wear a mask at all times while you’re in their room.
- No visitors under age 12 are permitted.
- Cafeterias are open with strict social distancing in place. Visitors are encouraged to take food back to the patient’s room.
Below is more detailed information on our current visitor guidelines:
- Inpatient operating room, outpatient operating room, cath lab, endoscopy and interventional radiology procedures: One visitor will be directed to a designated waiting room. Visitor will remain in designated waiting area while patient is in pre-op and recovery room and cannot roam the hospital or go to the cafeteria. Following the procedure, visitor is required to leave after they have been updated by physician.

Visitors are encouraged to take food back to the patient’s room.
