Greenwich Hospital Announces Revised Visitation Policy

Greenwich Hospital will begin allowing visitors on a limited basis at the main campus.

All visitors must be 18 or older, screened at the hospital’s main entrance, wear a mask for the duration of their stay, and receive a visitor pass at the Information Desk. Visitors who screen positive will not be permitted to enter the hospital.

No individuals are allowed to visit a COVID-19 positive patient due to continued concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus.

Inpatient Visitation: Hospitalized patients may have one visitor from 2 – 6 pm daily. Visitors must go directly to the patient room and return the visitor pass upon leaving.

Ambulatory Surgery and Perioperative Procedure Visitation: One visitor may accompany a patient coming for same-day surgery or a perioperative procedure. The visitor must remain with the patient or in the waiting area. If a patient requires an overnight stay, the visitor must leave the hospital when the patient goes in for surgery and may return during visiting hours 2 – 6 pm.

Labor & Deliver and Maternity Visitation: One visitor may stay for the duration of the mother’s hospital stay.

Pediatric Visitation: One visitor may stay for the duration of the pediatric patient’s hospital stay.

Visitor Policy Exceptions: Exceptions will be made for patients at imminent end of life and for patients with special needs who may need a support person with them to facilitate care.

Greenwich Hospital continues to encourage families, friends and loved ones to use electronic devices and applications to keep in contact with patients.
