If you are having an emergency, need to schedule a procedure or want to see your doctor, it is safe to visit our hospital and clinics.

  • Everyone entering our buildings is required to wear masks, which can be provided, if needed.

Visitor Policy

Visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Masks and social distancing are required.

• Only visitors free of COVID symptoms or exposure are allowed to visit.

Patients having an outpatient procedure may have their essential visitor(s) with them. However, if social distancing is not possible in the waiting area due to number of visitors, they may be asked to wait in the car or another vacant area in the hospital. Staff will call or text the visitor when it is time to come in the hospital.

Emergency Department patients will be allowed one visitor. If the patient is admitted to an inpatient unit, the visitor may accompany the patient to the room during the regular visitor hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Patients who are COVID‐19 positive or are suspected to be positive are not allowed to have visitors except in the following circumstances:

  • Laboring mothers may have a maximum of one designated healthy visitor throughout their stay

  • Patients at end of life will be allowed one asymptomatic visitor one time for 30 minutes. The visitor must wear specific protective equipment as determined by the healthcare team.

Non-COVID end-of-life patients are allowed two visitors at a time (max total of 4 visitors) regardless of visiting hours.
Non-COVID patients with comfort care orders may have 2 visitors during visiting hours. One visitor may be allowed to stay after visiting hours have ended.
No domestic pet visits. Service animals may have restrictions; refer to the pet visitation policy.

To enter Liberty Hospital visitors must:

  • Wear masks. All visitors must wear a face mask and are encouraged to bring their own. In some circumstances, masks and other equipment will be provided.
  • Maintain six feet of distance from others while in the facility. Follow maximum capacity signage in elevators; and avoid gathering in waiting rooms, lobbies or entrances.

  • Be in good health. Visitors should complete a self‐screening at home. They should stay home if having COVID symptoms, awaiting test results or have been recently exposed to COVID.

  • Perform hand hygiene before entering and upon leaving our facility and rooms to prevent the spread of virus on high touch surfaces.

We continue to encourage hospital patients to communicate electronically or by phone with loved ones and friends. Video chat, voice and text messaging options are digital alternatives and help our patients and loved ones feel connected. Should patients desire to visit others virtually and lack a device (e.g., smartphone or tablet), please let the patient care team know so we may help you with devices and technical support.
