VISITOR RESTRICTIONS ON CAMPUS
Southwest Health System (SHS) Increases Visitor Restriction – With the recent increase in cases in our area and in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, SHS will be tightening up their visitor policy.
NO VISITORS/COMPANIONS ALLOWED UNLESS:
1) THE PATIENT IS A MINOR
2) HAS A DISABILITY
3) HAS DEMENTIA (OR SIMILAR IMPAIRMENT)
4) IS A LABORING MOM
(THIS INCLUDES SALES, VENDORS AND OTHER ANCILLARY SUPPORT NOT ESSENTIAL FOR CONTINUED OPERATIONS.)
Patients who are being seen for symptoms consistent with COVID19 (cough, fever, body aches and chills) will be separated from other patients.
Patient entrances are limited to the Hospital Main Entrance, the Emergency Room and the Medical Office Building entrance. Concierges will be at these entrances to provide temperature checks and to ensure those entering meet the requirements above.
We encourage patients to utilize on-line bill pay options or pay by phone at 970-564-2130. Patients can call ahead if medical records are urgently needed at 970-564-2311. The Retail Pharmacy offers curbside pickup by calling 970-564-2280.
These restrictions will remain in place until further notice and will be continually reevaluated. The most current information will be available on Facebook at facebook.com/SWhealthsystem and www.swhealth.org.
If you have questions about COVID-19 or feel you are exhibiting symptoms such as cough, fever and shortness of breath, you may call our patient information line at 970-564-2201.
