Visitor Restrictions for CaroMont Health Locations

03-16-2020

For the health and safety of our patients, employees and community, CaroMont Health is implementing visitor restrictions for all of its facilities. The decision is made in accordance with the latest guidance from federal, state and local health officials, and follows a collaborative effort among CaroMont Health and six other regional health systems to restrict visitors at all of their inpatient facilities.

CaroMont Regional Medical Center and the Birthplace

Visitors are screened at entrances and must meet these criteria:

  • Over the age of 12; and
  • An immediate family member, significant other, legal guardian or other person(s) who may be considered family in the absence of immediate family; and
  • NO signs of symptoms of respiratory illness

  • No visitors

Gaston Hospice’s Robin Johnson House

  • Only immediate family members defined as first-degree relatives (spouse, parents, children and legal guardians)
  • No more than two visitors at a time

Gaston Hospice on Garrison Road

  • No Visitors
  • All meetings, appointments, support groups and education to be canceled or held via telephone

Please remember, these restrictions were put in place to help prevent the spread of illness, not to keep patients from exercising their right to have visitors of their choosing.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and CaroMont Health will take additional steps to help control the spread of the virus as necessary. If individuals have traveled to areas that are affected by COVID-19 or have been exposed to a person with the virus, they are encouraged to call their healthcare provider before going to an office or clinic. Calling ahead will allow healthcare providers to offer instructions and guidance for individuals to receive care and minimize exposure to others.
