As of March 15, 2021, the hospital is allowing hospitalized patients to have visitors. Visitors must be 18 years of age or older and follow the guidelines below:
During your visit, all Patients and Care Partners MUST:
Health and visitor screening stations are located at the Main Entrance (7:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.), the River Tower Entrance FRONT ONLY (6:00a.m. to 6:30p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30am - 5:00pm on Saturday), and the Emergency Department Entrance (24 Hours) to the hospital. The entrance closest to the HR Department (near middle of the hospital in front) will be locked to badge access only. The rear River Tower entrance is closed to the public until further notice.
Visitors differ from Care Partners.. A Care Partner is a designated person (chosen by patient and 18 years or older) who is willing to assist a patient in their time of need. Care Partners may now accompany patients in the Emergency Department and be present in a hospital room with proper personal protective equuipment (PPE) for Covid-19 positive patients.
Heritage Place has not allowed visitors per CDC recommendation since March 12, 2020.
