Visitor Policy During Flu Season

Increase in Flu Cases Limits Visitors

As in many parts of the United States, residents of southwest Michigan are experiencing an increase in the flu. To help protect the health of our patients, we are asking community members to follow a revised visitation policy for our hospitals. Community members are asked to please stay home and not visit loved ones at the hospital if:

  • You are currently sick and/or contagious. If you have, or have recently had a fever, runny nose, cough, body aches, you may be contagious.
  • You are not an immediate family member of a hospitalized patient.
  • You are less than 18 years old.

If you are sick, please visit your doctor, a walk-in clinic, or our Emergency Department. It is not too late to have a flu shot to protect yourself and your family.
Your generosity can make a difference.
