Full visitor restrictions are in place at all our facilities. Visitors will not be allowed to accompany or visit patients at the Regional Medical Center (hospital) or clinics.
Exceptions to the visitor restrictions include*:
For end-of-life patients, two visitors will be allowed at any given time.
One essential caregiver will be allowed to accompany patients. An essential caregiver is defined as a single person who is designated to assist in decision making or care instructions for the patient.
One caregiver is allowed to accompany or visit minor patients. Minors may have two guardians accompany or visit when legally required for medical decision making.
One support person per labor patient on Women and Children’s Unit.
All visitors* will be screened and required to wear masks while inside our facilities. This includes when they are in a patient room. Patients will also be expected to wear a mask unless they are under the age of two or there are extenuating circumstances (e.g., breathing difficulties). Everyone is encouraged to bring their own mask, but masks will also be available to borrow at all entrances.
*Visitors who have COVID-19 symptoms or have had contact with someone who has COVID-19 will not be allowed to visit or accompany a patient.
Other prevention measures

All public entrances to the Regional Medical Center (except the Emergency Room and Urgent Care) will close at 6:00 p.m. until further notice. The Main and East entrances will be closed during the weekend (please use Emergency Department entrance).
St. Peter’s Health is asking that patients who are exhibiting COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms NOT visit the organization’s Broadway Clinic at 2550 Broadway or the North Clinic located at 3330 Ptarmigan Lane. This will allow these clinics to continue to safely care for patients that do not have COVID-19 and flu-like symptoms.
Anyone experiencing COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms should call their provider OR visit the Urgent Care clinic at the Regional Medical Center for a walk-in appointment.
