Parkview Medical Center Decreases Allowed Visitors

(PUEBLO November 23, 2020) – As Parkview continues to care for the community due to the COVID-19 surge, changes in the visitor policy of the hospital have been made. 

Effective Monday, November 23rd, patients in the medical intensive care unit, neuro intensive care unit and cardio vascular intensive care unit will not be allowed to have visitors.  Floors caring COVID-19 patients will remain at no visitors.      

For all other areas, visiting hours remain from 10:00am to 8:00pm.  Patients are allowed only one visitor in a 24-hour period.  That same visitor may leave and reenter during the 24-hour period. 

We understand this might not be ideal for families and friends visiting loved ones but this measure of precaution is to keep everyone safe.  The health and safety of our patients, their families and the Parkview team is our top priority,” stated Leslie Barnes, President and CEO. 

Additional Visiting Rules 

Visitors with cold (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath) or flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches) are not allowed in Parkview buildings, unless for medical care.  All visitors meeting the exception criteria will be scanned for temperatures by Parkview personnel. 

Visitors must enter through the main entrance of the hospital on Grand Street. The parking garage will continue to be open but the sky bridge will be closed.  Visitors will need to take the elevator down to the first floor and come across the street to the main entrance on Grand Street.    

Parkview encourages everyone to follow CDC guidelines of washing your hands, social distancing and cover your cough/sneezes.
