Before you visit, learn where to go and see our policies that help ensure your health and safety as well as our patients.

COVID-19 Patient Visitation Policy

Penn State Health is committed to the safety of patients, staff, visitors and the general public. Under the recently revised policy, adult inpatients may have one family/support person with them during their entire stay, and pediatric patients may have two. The designated family/support person(s) will be the only one(s) allowed into Penn State Health facilities throughout a patient’s stay. Adult patients accessing emergency departments and outpatient clinics will not be permitted any family/support persons. Per the visitation restriction policy, no visitors, aside from patient-designated family/support persons, are allowed at this time.

All visitors must check in and show photo identification at the desk in the main hospital. Please wear your visitor badge at all times during your visit. Call if you have questions.
