Update to COVID-19 Visitor Policy

Starting Saturday, July 18th, at 7am, both hospitals have reverted back to our previous visitor policy due to the increased spread of Covid-19 in our community.

One visitor for L&D and one visitor for pediatric patients. These are the only visitors we will allow at this time. New moms can have one visitor during their delivery and stay at the hospital. The visitor may come and go as often as needed; however, it needs to be the same person the entire time. Please ensure that the visitors are wearing a mask at all times.

Please inform the patients/visitors we currently have in the hospital of this visitor policy in order for them to make the necessary arrangements.

We appreciate your support as we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients during the pandemic.

Thank you,

Troy Brumfield, DO
Scott Taylor, MD
Gregory West, MD
Ned Hillyard, Chief Clinical/Compliance Officer

Wednesday, July 29th

All Hands BBQ

Please mark your calendars for the annual All Hands BBQ on Wednesday July 29th held at the Hospital Main Campus Westside Parking Lot!

Lunch will be served from 11:30am -1:30pm. We understand attending the BBQ is not a possibility for all team members, especially those working at off-site clinics and office buildings. We will have to-go-boxes available for team members who would be able to pick up lunch and take it back to their team. If you need more than 5 to go boxes please email Human Resources and let us know in advance so we can have them waiting for you.

Due to Covid-19 we will not be having our famous Dessert Competition. We have teamed up with Kona Ice to provide Snow Cones to our team members throughout the day on July 29th. Please see the below schedule for when they will be visiting a facility nearest you.

Thank you for all of your amazing hard work!
