Please be kind to our team members if they remind you of our policy. We want to keep everyone safe.
In outpatient areas of the hospital, such as therapy, visitor restrictions may be different as waiting areas are small, and we are enforcing social distancing measures. Thank you for understanding.
These are the current visitor restrictions in place at UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Hospital effective October 3, 2022.
Thank you for following our guidelines and treating healthcare workers with respect. Violence is never okay, especially in a healing environment.
- ICU, Emergency Department and SurgiCare patients can only have two visitors at the bedside at a time. (two other visitors may be in the lounge area).
- Patients at end-of-life may have visitors assessed on a case-by-case basis.
- Children of all ages may visit (except in the ICU, children must be 12 or older). Children must be in good health, have not tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has had COVID-19 in the last 10 days.
UnityPoint Health COVID-19 Masking Policy
Effective Monday, October 3, 2022
As of October 3, 2022, masking is based on personal preference. Patients and visitors should mask in our facilities if they are currently ill with respiratory symptoms, have a COVID-19 diagnosis, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days. Masking is strongly recommended when community transmission levels are high. We encourage anyone who prefers to continue masking to do so.
Patients and visitors should use our complimentary valet parking and enter through our West Entrance. An information desk is located immediately through the main entrance double doors.
Sending a gift
It's easy to order flowers or a gift or a greeting online for patients at St. Luke's.
St. Luke's believes having visitors and family present during
hospitalization may help patients in their recovery. In addition, we
recognize the rights of patients to have visitors while they are
hospitalized. Visitors are typically welcome from 5 a.m. - 8 p.m., although some
units may have more limited visiting policies that meet the need of
their patients. In addition, we observe a quiet time
from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. each day.
