LMH Health implements additional changes to visitor policy in response to COVID-19 concerns

Effective immediately, LMH Health will begin limiting hospital visitors to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that we are limiting risk for patients, visitors, staff, volunteers and the community.

Until further notice, LMH Health is restricting visitation to two visitors per patient. Additionally, visitors under age 18 are not allowed.

Please understand that further restrictions may be put in place. For example, visitors may not be permitted to enter LMH Health as the situation continues to evolve. 

We understand that connecting with family members is very important. Please consider electronic means whenever possible, and know that very rare exceptions may be made in extenuating circumstances for visitors over age 18.
