Please Call Ahead Before Any Visit & Wear a Mask or Face Covering

To reduce community spread of COVID-19, we're asking all patients to please call ahead before visiting a clinic. If you have an appointment at a UnityPoint Health location, please wear a mask or face covering except for children under two years old, anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Visitor Restrictions - Updated 10/16/20

We know visitors are very important to a patient's recovery. We want patients, caregivers, and staff to be safe while COVID-19 is still in our community. Because of this, the visitor restrictions below remain in place at our hospital and clinics.

Additionally, anyone entering our facilities will be required to wear a mask per our universal masking policy. 

Visitor Restrictions - updated 10/16/20

Effective Monday, October 19th, the following additional visitor restriction will be in place:

Patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are NOT permitted to have visitors.

  • Visitation is not permitted to limit the risk of exposure to others, except in exceptional and unusual situations. 

  • Alternative communication tools are encouraged for visits with family and friends (tablets, phones, etc)

  • If a patient's status changes from Suspected COVID to COVID Negative, then normal visitation policies will be in effect.

  • This restriction does not apply to Pediatric and OB patients.

We understand how difficult it can be to not be able to be with your loved one at a time like this. Our top priority is the safety for all patients and staff, and because the risk of spreading the coronavirus is so high, we are putting these additional protection measures in place to help stop the spread of the infection.

  • Emergency Department will continue to allow visitors by exception only.

  • (1) visitor is allowed to accompany a patient during Outpatient services, but must stay in the designated are for the service being provided.

All visitors must be in good health and will be screened prior to entrance into the hospital for fever and other symptoms related to COVID-19.
