COVID-19 Temporary Visitor Guidelines

Updated: July 17th, 2020

Starting Friday, July 10, Hillsboro Area Hospital will be enforcing a No Visitor Policy. The purpose of this policy is to help ensure the safety, health, and wellness of our patients, community, and team members during the COVID-19 outbreak. There will be exceptions to this policy for special circumstances, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Critical patients undergoing emergency care
  • Critical Patients
  • Patients undergoing emergent surgical procedures are permitted one support person over the age of 18
  • Pediatric patients may have one parent or guardian present as their support person
  • Visitors under the age of 18 will continue to be prohibited unless they are the parent of a child receiving care
  • Patients reporting for outpatient services (lab draws, x-rays, etc.) should ask their support person to remain in their vehicle for the duration of the hospital visit
  • Other special circumstances will be evaluated on a case by case basis 

All patients, employees, and permitted visitors will be screened and have their temperature taken before entering the building.

To check on patients admitted to the hospital, family members may call 217-532-4172. We are also more than happy to assist you in Facetiming your loved one with their permission during this difficult time.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding as we work very hard to ensure the safety and health of our community!
