UC Health Hospital Visitor Restrictions*
The safety of our patients, visitors, staff and clinicians is of utmost importance to UC Health. As of today, UC Medical Center, West Chester Hospital and Daniel Drake Center for Post-Acute Care do not allow visitors on their campuses.
There are few exceptions to this that are handled on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Medical Director and Nurse Manager. Any visitors that meet the exception will be screened for COVID-19 or flu symptoms, as well as other potential exposures. Screening will include cough, temperature higher than 100.0, shortness of breath, traveling outside the US, or recent close contact with someone ill or a person with confirmed COVID-19.
UC Health encourages loved ones to use video chat on personal devices to connect with patients whenever able.
*Important Note: We are working diligently to safely loosen our visitor restrictions. We hope to announce a new restriction policy in the coming days/weeks.
Restarting Our Clifton Campus Revitalization
As part of our Responsible Return, we’re gradually restarting select construction and renovation projects on our Clifton Campus that were paused in early March. This work is primarily funded by previously secured investments that can be used only on projects such as these.
You may soon see construction activity when you visit our Clifton Campus. Please know the safety of our patients, visitors and employees is always our top priority. We’re working closely with all construction teams, including their subcontractors, to follow all proper COVID-19 safety protocols.
We’re proud to be creating healing, innovative environments for our friends and neighbors that reﬂect the expertise, passion and innovation that occurs every day within our walls.
