Our hospital's current visitor information

In our continuing efforts to protect our patients, the following visitation guidelines are in place. All inpatient visitors are asked to enter through the main entrance of the hospital for check-in and receive a key card which must be returned upon departure.

Visiting hours are 8:00am to 9:00pm for all inpatient visitors except support persons for active labor and delivery patients. Visitors under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult visitor at all times.

  • Emergency room — Two well visitors at a time based on occupancy.
  • Inpatient admissions — Two well visitors at a time for each admitted patient.
  • Critical Care patients – Two well visitors at a time for each admitted patient. Visitors under the age of 13 are not permitted.
  • Maternity patients — One visitor at a time for an obstetric patient in triage or observation. Five visitors are allowed at all times for laboring and postpartum patients. However, only three visitors are allowed in a patient room at one time – up to two additional visitors may wait in the Women’s Center visitor room. Visitors under the age of 13 are not permitted unless they are siblings of the newborn.
  • Pediatric patients — Three visitors at a time are allowed. Two visitors may stay overnight for pediatric patients.
  • Procedural/surgical patients — Two visitors are allowed for each procedural or surgical patient (catheterization lab, special procedures/endoscopy).

Fairview Park Hospital reserves the right to deny visitation to visitors who do not follow hospital policies. Visitation is subject to change at the discretion of hospital staff based on patient conditions and needs.

Facts and the latest updates about COVID-19 vaccination

See the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) resource page for extensive information and the latest recommendations regarding COVID-19 vaccination.

Why get vaccinated?

Immunization helps save millions of lives every year. Whereas most medicines treat or cure diseases, vaccines can help prevent them by working with your body's natural defenses to build protection. When you receive a vaccine, your immune system responds.

Vaccines prevent more than 20 life-threatening diseases, and help people of all ages live longer, healthier lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that globally, immunization currently prevents between 2 and 3 million deaths every year from diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, influenza and measles.

COVID-19 vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. Other steps, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask and staying at least six feet away from others, may help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others. Together, COVID-19 vaccination and following CDC's recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
