Visitor Restrictions

At Piedmont Medical Center, we have been adjusting our visitation policy as the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic evolves. 

Presently, one designated visitor is permitted to accompany patients who have been admitted to the hospital, Emergency Department patients, and patients that have a scheduled elective procedure.

Visitors will be screened for fever, respiratory symptoms or travel to high risk locations prior to entering the hospital, and required to wear visitor identification, a facemask, and sanitize their hands. Specifically designated waiting areas allow physical distancing for designated visitors and include additional cleaning protocols. 

Any visitor not meeting screening criteria will not be permitted to enter the hospital. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.


Our top priority is making sure our patients, visitors, staff and community remain safe. For that reason, we have decided to temporarily forego hosting events, such as educational medical seminars and classes, and health screenings, thereby lessening the potential for exposure to coronavirus. Please continue to check our website for information on when these events will resume.

Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

Entry and exit is now limited to the main lobby and emergency room only.

An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
