Patients and Visitors

UnityPoint Health - Jones Regional Medical Center

People are amazing — we help keep them that way.

At Jones Regional Medical Center, we offer so much more than exceptional healthcare. We also provide patients and visitors with the comforts of home, the convenience you need and helpful, compassionate service.

We believe 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. Although we do not have specific visiting hours, rest is an important part of the healing process. Our staff will work with patients to individualize visiting needs.
