Because loved ones are everything.
Masking Required for Visitors
Effective December 27, 2023, all Pipeline Health hospital facilities are observing the following visitor guidelines for the safety of our patients and staff:
- Masks are required in all patient care areas including patient rooms, hallways in patient care areas, procedural areas, and outpatient areas (e.g., the Emergency Department).
- Masks are not required but are strongly encouraged in nonpatient care areas including but not limited to the cafeteria, main lobby, and elevators.
- Eating in patient care areas is not allowed due to masking requirements. You are welcome to eat in the cafeteria.
- If you have a fever, cough, congestion or symptoms of any infectious disease, please stay home and follow up with your physician. You can visit when you are feeling better.
The safety and healing of our patients is everyone’s top priority. We appreciate the cooperation of all visitors as we care for your loved one.
