Visitor Policy

To protect you, your family and everyone at Emerson Hospital, we have made some changes to our visitor policy to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community.

These guidelines are similar to what is being put into place at hospitals across the country to protect the public and prevent the spread of the illness. Thank you for understanding and cooperating with these changes. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk with one of your caregivers.

Visitor Policy, Effective March 16, 2020


No visitors allowed at Emerson Hospital. Certain exceptions allow one healthy visitor for the following patients:
  • ​Children under the age of 18
  • Maternity patients
  • Patients facing end of life

We understand this may be difficult and thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time.
