Visitation put on pause at Nuvance Health facilities

COVID-19 Visitation Update


Nuvance Health puts patient safety measures into place

Visitation across Nuvance Health is temporarily paused except for special patient populations and extenuating circumstance. This is effective Thursday, Aug. 19.


This visitation policy update includes inpatient hospital units, emergency departments, ambulatory services and Nuvance Health Medical Practices.


Special populations or extenuating circumstances include: patients under 21, neonatal intensive care units, maternity departments, end-of-life patients or people with physical, intellectual, development or cognitive disabilities.


Nuvance Health’s goal is to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all patients, staff and essential visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.


“This is a very important way to limit the risk of possible exposure to COVID-19 to you, your loved ones and the community,” said Stephen Meth, Chief Experience Officer for Nuvance Health.


Recent data shows the escalation of positive COVID 19 infections in our communities. Nuvance Health urges our community members to vaccinate against COVID-19 and stop further spread of the virus.


“We know that visitors and loved ones play an essential role as partners in healing and wellness,” said Meth. “That’s why this visitation policy will be reevaluated regularly and removed as soon as conditions allow.”
