OhioHealth Announces New Visitor Guidelines Effective Immediately

OhioHealth has created some guidelines for visitors, including faith leaders, as  they come into our hospitals. Visitors must be 18 or older. Patients will be limited to one visitor at a time, up to two visitors per day, in most areas of the hospital (clergy are included in this total). Maternity patients will be limited to one support person during their entire length of stay. In-person Behavioral Health visits will no longer be permitted, due to the common space these require. Visiting hours are 8 am to 9 pm. Overnight visits will not be permitted, with the exception of end-of-life situations. We will make limited exceptions for end-of-life patients and for those with disabilities who need assistance. Visitors  to all OhioHealth hospitals, outpatient care centers and physician offices will also be screened and will not be granted entrance if any of the following apply: Exhibiting flu-like symptoms. Fever within the past 24 hours. Cough or shortness of breath within the past 14 days. Contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient within the past 14 days. International travel within the past 14 days. If you would like for a congregant to be visited while they are in the hospital, we are happy to have one of our chaplains visit them. Learn More...
