Beginning Monday, June 7, UNC Health Southeastern will expand general visitation for the medical center to two visitors per patient with visiting hours being extended to 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Other changes to the guidelines include two visitors for laboring mothers and two parents or guardians for minor patients. In both cases, one visitor will be allowed to remain with the patient after visiting hours have ended each day.
Visitation for COVID-19 positive patients and patients on specialized hospital units, such as ICU and emergency services, have varying visitation policies specific to their diagnosis and unit. Visitors for these patients will need to consult medical center staff for specific visitation guidelines.
All medical center visitors must be age 18 or older and are required to be screened and show a valid photo I.D. All approved visitors must wear their visitor badge at all times.
UNC Health Southeastern clinics and outpatient affiliates will allow one visitor per patient.
WoodHaven Nursing, Alzheimer’s, and Rehabilitation Center continues to allow visitors by appointment only, following all CDC and NCDHHS guidelines.
