Hospital Care

Important information during COVID-19

We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19.For safety reasons, we only allow one adult visitor per patient, per day. No visitors are allowed for patients with COVID-19. Exceptions to these policies include:

  • Newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Birth center patients: Two support persons, including a doula (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Surgical and procedural visits: Visitors need to wait in their car or at home if possible. The surgery department will call the visitor when the patient is ready to leave.
  • Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
  • Compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)

We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or setting up Google Duo (PDF). Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.

If you need in-person or emergency care, don’t delay. We’re open and ready to care for you, with rigorous safety and cleaning protocols in place to help keep you healthy. To see if you should be tested for COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 testing page.

Hospital Medicine: Our Hospital Medicine providers, supported in part by physicians from Regions Hospital, focus their practice on the care of hospitalized patients and provide better continuity of care for patients. They are specially trained in internal medicine and coordinate communication between all of the physicians involved in a patient’s inpatient care. This includes primary/family medicine physicians and other specialists. As well, hospitalists make rounds on patients multiple times during the day.

Transition Care Unit: When patients have been in the hospital for an illness or surgery and they are medically stable but not quite ready to return to their home we have what is called a Transitional Care Unit (TCU). Our TCU is committed to providing rehabilitation that meets all of the patient’s needs to help them onto their next transition. Our TCU rooms are located with our inpatient hospital rooms. All are private with their own private bathroom. TCU provides skilled therapies from Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists as well as other therapies as needed or desired.
