NO VISITORS (Until Further Notice)

ATTENTION: NO VISITORS until further notice.

KCH is implementing a NO VISITOR policy effective Monday, November 2 at 6 am, until further notice.

There will be very limited exceptions only for:
  • End-of-life patients

  • Patients with disabilities who need assistance

  • Ultrasounds for pregnant women will allow a support person

  • Patients under 18 - Both parents will be allowed to visit their child

  • Maternity patients can have one support person for the duration of their hospital stay

There will be no time limits on approved visitors. There will be no visitation restriction on members of the clergy and those with power of attorney.

The power of attorney applies only to a person who is making decisions for a patient who is unable to do so, based upon the physician’s evaluation of the patient’s cognitive abilities.

All Knox Community Hospital care sites will be impacted by this policy, to include:

  • Knox Community Hospital
  • Knox Medical Pavilion
  • Wright Family Medical Pavilion
  • Center for Rehabilitation and Wellness
  • KCH Urgent Care
  • All Department of Primary and Specialty Care Physician Group offices
  • Any KCH-run facility
