As COVID-19 positivity rates continue to decline, The New Roseland Community Hospital is easing restrictions on our visitor policy. Effective Monday, February 28, 2022, we will begin allowing patients that have tested negative for COVID-19, to have visitors. Visitors must comply with strict health and safety guidelines recommended by the CDC, IDPH, CDPH, and all other governing bodies. These guidelines were designed to ensure safety remains our top priority. These adjustments are also being implemented with input from our multidisciplinary Infection Control Committee.
Visitor access is limited and outlined below. In some cases, visitor access may not be granted at all. Limited cases may be granted on a case-by-case basis.
