Visitation Level – Moderate
Entrance to our facilities is limited to only those with appointments for medical care or persons seeking care, and approved visitors. Based on the level of community spread of Covid-19 , South Peninsula Hospital’s visitation level is currently at: Moderate. A moderate visitation level means each patient admitted to the hospital, here for an ER visit or here for a surgical procedure will be allowed one visitor, per day, per admission or procedure. Our current inpatient visitation hours are from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday – Sunday. We understand this isn’t ideal and apologize for any inconvenience. This precaution is to help safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff, patients, and visitors so that we can continue to serve our community and provide you with the best care. All visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and possible exposure, will need to wear a face cover, and will be restricted to certain areas within the facilities.
