Visiting Patients

Visiting Policy Guidelines (Updated May 2020)

Out of an abundance of caution and to protect the health and wellbeing of patients, visitors, staff, and community members. St. Francis-Emory Healthcare has implemented visitor restrictions and limited access points. Per CDC guidelines, everyone entering the hospital will be screened for respiratory symptoms and travel history. A zero-visitor protocol will be implemented until further notice. Some exceptions apply:

  • OB patients plus the father of the baby or significant other
  • Patients receiving end of life care (ER Atrium Entrance only)
  • Pediatric patients (1 caregiver)
