Because COVID-19 is changing and cases are on the rise, the visiting hours at Pioneer Memorial Hospital must change too. Therefore, please note, effective immediately and until further notice, our visitation policy is as follows:
- Hospitalized patients may have one visitor during a 24-hour period. The person visiting the patient may leave and return; however, there will be no interchanging of visitors, meaning the visitor must be the same person during the 24 hours.
- Adult patients in the hospital’s emergency room may have one support person with them. Children under the age of 18 may have two support people present while in the ER.
- Patients with disabilities may designate up to three support people to be present during their hospital visit.
- Long Term Care Patients may have visitors; however, these visitors must enter through the long-term care entrance of the hospital. Please note that our screening staff is aware of our necessary protocols, and we will arrange for staff to meet you at the South entrance for entry.
- Clinic patients may have one support person with them for clinic visits.
- FOR ALL STAFF, PATIENTS, VISITORS AND VENDORS: To enter any one of our facilities, you must wear a face covering and participate in a safety screening before entering the building, which includes answering a few questions and a temperature check.
- Should you have any special concerns regarding a patient in Hospice, please contact: Kathleen Greenup, Chief Nursing Officer at (503)789-0984.
On behalf of the entire MCHD staff, including those who work at the hospital, in our clinics, EMS, Home Health, and Hospice, please know that your health and safety, and that of our staff, is our #1 priority – Always!
We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Together, we can be a Healthier Morrow County!
