Active visitor restrictions

To reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses, we are taking the following precautions to protect our patients and you:

  • Inpatient visiting hours are 8:00am - 6:00pm.
  • No visitors are allowed for patients who are diagnosed with or suspected as having COVID-19.
  • During visiting hours, one designated visitor per day is allowed to visit patients admitted to the inpatient floor. Visitors are not permitted to leave the hospital and return the same day.
  • No visitors under the age of 14.
  • Maternity patients are allowed one designated visitor for the duration of their hospital stay. The specified visitor is not restricted to visitation hours. Should the mother choose to have a paid professional doula, they will serve as the mother's designated visitor.
  • ICU visitation is allowed between 10 a.m.-Noon and 3 p.m.-5 p.m. Only one designated visitor per day is permitted.
  • One visitor is allowed for ER patients unless the patient is diagnosed with or under investigation for COVID-19.
  • Parkridge Health System currently has implemented a universal masking policy, which requires visitors to wear a mask in the halls and when Parkridge staff are in the hospital room.
  • Parkridge Medical Center's cafeteria is currently open for breakfast Monday-Friday, 7-9:30 a.m. Chicken Salad Chick offers lunch options, beginning at 10 a.m. The Parkridge East cafeteria is open Mon - Fri 7:15am - 9:00am and 11:00am - 1:30pm.
  • Parkridge Medical Center's gift shop is open for snack and drinks. Its hours of operation are Mon - Fri, 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sat, 11:00am - 4:00pm.

Thank you for your help in maintaining a safe environment for our patients.


Masking guidelines

We are continuing to follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 public health crisis by implementing additional masking for all patients and visitors in public spaces such as hallways and elevators.

  • Masks will be provided to patients and visitors, and these masks should remain on until they are in their private room. Once in a private room, patients and visitors may remove their masks.
  • Masks should be reused when visitors leave the room and until they exit the building.
  • Visitors may use their own facemasks, instead of the masks provided by the hospital, but a mask must be worn.
