Effective at 1:00 p.m. today (3/18/2020) Endless Mountains Health Systems has made the decision to move to a no visitation policy for inpatient, Emergency Department, same-day-surgery until further notice. For those individuals who are transporting patients or caregivers to outpatient services (imaging, lab, etc… as well as the clinic) those individuals can wait in common areas or waiting rooms.
All elective surgical procedures have been postponed, indefinitely. This is in effect starting at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 20, 2020.
This decision was made in light of the current situation relative to the Corona Virus and COVID-19. This is a difficult time for all of us as healthcare workers and it is only to protect our patients and ourselves that we have changed the policy.
