Visiting Hours

Washington Regional Medical Center’s current visitor policy allows a limited number of patient visitors. All visitors must pass a Coronavirus screening and are required to wear an approved mask that covers both the mouth and nose while on the Washington Regional campus. Bandanas, gaiters, mesh masks and lace masks are not approved face coverings. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own mask. Our screening stations can provide you with an appropriate mask if you need one. Visitors must also practice proper hand hygiene and observe social distancing measures.

Patients in the categories below will be allowed visitors:

  • Inpatients: Patients are permitted one (1) visitor per day between the hours of 4pm– 7pm. The visitor must stay in the patient’s room during the visit. Patients receiving end-of-life care will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may be allowed more than one (1) visitor.
  • COVID-19 Patients: Visitors may only enter when patient is receiving end-of-life care.
