Visitor Restrictions

Visitor Restrictions

At Piedmont Medical Center, we have been adjusting our actions as the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves. Out of an abundance of caution, we are changing our visitation policy until further notice. Thank you for understanding that this is for your health and safety.

Visiting hours at Piedmont Medical Center now eliminated. Physical visitor(s) will be allowed, with review and approval by clinical leadership as follows:
  • Patient in grave condition
  • Patient having a baby
  • Patient at end of life
  • Private duty care takers
Only one visitor/companion per patient:
  • Patient undergoing surgery
  • Patient requiring outpatient test/procedure
As individuals enter either hospital through the Emergency Department, hospital staff are screening for recent travel and symptoms, including fever or respiratory symptoms (shortness of breath or cough).

We encourage virtual visits via Skype, Facetime, etc. between patients and their families through personal devices.


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.
