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.

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.

A BIG Thank You!
Rhonda Sanders is a housekeeper! She has done an incredible job of keeping the entry way clean. Last week she was on her hands and knees scrubbing the stairs down to the café. She is constantly cleaning up there, stops to say hi and offers to assist patients. I don’t think I have ever seen her without a smile on her face! She is a shining example of what our MVH and IFCH culture is! See the before and after of stairs…This was a lot of hard work!
