At Centura Health, our communities’ health and wellness guide everything we do.
Our incredible caregivers, in coordination with officials at CDPHE and local health departments, follow all proper CDC protocols for patient handling of suspected COVID-19 cases.
Current Visitor Policy
Due to the escalating COVID-19 community spread, we are restricting all visitors across the Centura Health System. This includes visitors to the emergency departments, inpatient areas, ambulatory sites and other facilities. As the COVID-19 status continues to evolve, we encourage you to check back, as visitor restrictions are subject to change.
- No visitors to patients.
- Only in select instances will we permit exceptions. These visitors will be screened for symptoms and will be restricted to specific areas. Additionally, only 1 visitor per patient per day will be permitted under these exceptions:
- Mothers on Labor and Delivery or Mom/Baby
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – mother and significant other are allowed to visit; one visitor at a time
- Any patients with a disability who require assistance with the provision of medical care or activities of daily living, speaking for the patient or keeping the patient safe
- Individuals who exercise power of attorney or court-appointed guardianship for a patient
- Legal guardian is permitted for patients who are 21 years of age or younger
- Patient undergoing surgery or in procedural area on the day of the surgery or procedure
- Patients at end of life
- Individuals who administer last rites, or other spiritual sacraments, may be given as requested
- Patients in the Emergency Department, with the exception of those suspected of having COVID-19
- Patient designated caregiver to participate in the receipt of discharge instructions
“While we recognize that family and friends are an integral part of patient care and healing, we must do what is best in this rapidly changing situation. With the safety of our patients, visitors and associates in mind, we made the difficult decision to restrict visitors to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in alignment with many other local organizations including schools, churches and other venues. We recognize there are times when having a visitor or family member present is crucial. In those cases, visitors will be allowed based on our guidelines.” – Lisa Person, Senior Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer
