Visitor guidelines

Important: Care Partner and visitor guidelines: Details here 

Amid an increase in respiratory illness transmissions and guidance by the Illinois Department of Public Health, we are updating our masking policy to protect our most vulnerable patients: 

  • We require patients and visitors to mask when experiencing respiratory virus symptoms. 
  • We strongly recommend patients to mask when they are seeking care in high risk areas*, and other individuals to mask when they are visiting patients in high risk areas*. 
  • We kindly ask visitors who are sick to please reschedule visits. 

*High risk areas include all areas within our inpatient medical centers (i.e. inpatient units, ICUs, procedural areas, labor & delivery), emergency departments and cancer centers. If you are unsure, please ask.


If you have any questions, please contact our Patient Experience line at 331-221-1115.
