Patients and Visitors

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has declared the flu widespread in our state. To protect the health of our patients and employees, any sick persons regardless of age and anyone with known exposure to a contagious illness are restricted from visiting.

We are dedicated to meeting the health care needs of our patients and their families and to making your stay with us as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.

Visitor Guidelines

Family and friends play an important role in the healing process and are welcome to visit. However, we ask that you are respectful of the patient's need to rest during recovery.

  • Anyone with an infectious illness or recent exposure to a contagious disease, such as chickenpox, flu or measles, should not visit the hospital.
  • Smoking is not permitted in the building or on the campus grounds.
  • We are fragrance-free and latex-free. Please avoid wearing perfume or aftershave. Do not bring latex balloons as gifts.
