Updated March 30, 2020
In accordance with the CDC and the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Departments of Health, we have revised our visitor policy for all Penn Medicine’s hospitals and outpatient facilities.
All patients entering or staying in Penn Medicine hospitals and facilities will not be permitted to have accompanying visitors, except under special circumstances.
These circumstances include:
- Patients nearing the end of life
- Labor/delivery and post-partum (one designated support person)
- Neonatal Intensive Care
- Patients who are unable to complete the visit on their own
For these special circumstances only, visitors are limited to one person, over the age of 18. Visitors will be required to complete health screening procedures upon entry, have periodic monitoring and restrict mobility as much as possible while in Penn Medicine hospitals and facilities.
Any visitor who is sick, has a high risk of prior exposure or has traveled from a high-risk geographical area will not be permitted to enter any Penn Medicine hospital or outpatient facility under any circumstances.
If you have any questions or need more information about the visitor policy, please speak with your doctor or care team.
