VISITOR POLICY: Effective March 1, 2021, United Hospital District allows patients to have one consistent adult visitor per day. The same visitor will be allowed each day throughout the patient stay, as defined below.
All visitors must successfully complete the screening process of standard pre-screening questions and a temperature check. If a visitor screens positive for any symptoms or exposure to COVID-19, they will not be allowed to visit. Visitors allowed must stay in the patient’s room for the duration of the visit. Masks must be worn at all times, including in a patient’s room. Once the visitor leaves the patient room, they must leave the hospital.
“UHD waited on me hand and foot whenever I need something, they were right there to help.”
“I’ve been to a lot if hospitals in my time, and the United Hospital District doesn’t take a back seat to any of them. I can’t say enough about the quality of care I’ve received here. I think the entire staff does a tremendous job”
“Every single person that I had the pleasure to encounter at UHD was simply amazing.”
