Before You Visit:

We are limiting visitors to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. Read our visitation policy.

Visitors and staff are required to wear masks at all Covenant Health facilities and medical practices. To help conserve our supply of masks, we encourage you to bring a mask from home to wear. We also appreciate your donations of cloth masks. Thank you for  your cooperation in protecting the health and safety of our patients and employees.

In our ongoing efforts to ensure we are providing excellent care, we ask that all patients bring all home medications, including inhalers and spacers, with them when coming to our emergency departments or when being admitted to any of our hospitals.

Thank You for Your Support:

Thank you to so many in our community who have graciously donated cloth masks, PPE, and food for our Covenant Health family. Visit our Gratitude Page.
