Parkview Visitor and Entrance Updates, Effective Monday, March 23rd, 2020


 As Parkview continues to care for the community due to the COVID-19 outbreak, changes in the visitor policy of the hospital will go into effect on Monday, March 23rd

Effective Monday, March 23rd at 6:00 am, all visitors must enter through the main entrance of the hospital on Grand.  Visitors are encouraged to continue to park in the parking garage 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. 

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.  Exceptions may be considered for visitors of children and end of life situations. 

In addition, the hospital will continue to prohibit visitors into the hospital under the age of 18.  If visitors present symptoms of cold or flu, they will not be allowed in the hospital, regardless of age. 

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. 

Parkview Medical Center continues to stay diligent and prepared during the recent COVID-19 events.
