Memorial Updates Visitation Policies
Memorial Health has announced it will implement several changes in response to statewide COVID-19 orders lifted and decreasing COVID cases, in addition to more Ohioans receiving the vaccine.
Beginning Wednesday, June 2, the following changes will be effective:
- Temperature and symptom checks will no longer be required for visitors. All patients will still be screened at all locations as part of the registration process.
- The hospital’s Bistro ’52 (café) and two gift shops will now be open to guests and the community.
- Local organizations and groups are able to use the meeting rooms on the hospital’s main campus. In addition, Memorial will again host community blood drives.
- All Memorial Experience Concierges and Registration Department members will continue to screen patients with wellness questions, provide hand sanitizer, and ensure mask compliance.
- Increased cleaning and sanitizing measures will remain in place, as well as telehealth options at Memorial Medical Group practices and select outpatient services.
- Courtesy shuttle service will continue to transport patients and guests to/from their vehicles.
- Masks are still the norm in healthcare facilities in Ohio, even for those who are fully vaccinated. While at Memorial Health, patients, visitors, employees, and vendors will continue to wear a face covering/mask. This measure allows Memorial to continue to protect vulnerable and immunocompromised patients, and ensure Memorial is a safe healthcare location for all.
- Members of the Memorial Hospital Wellness Center may now utilize the locker room showers.
