There are no special hospital-wide visitor restrictions at this time. Any person with a fever, upper respiratory infection, sore throat, cold or any other infectious condition, or those who have been exposed to chicken pox, measles or mumps within the last three weeks should NOT visit Mission Hospital. This will prevent the spread of illnesses that can seriously compromise the health of our patients. Instead send a patient an email.
Also, the following specialized units operate with restricted visiting hours or special guidelines.
- Intensive Care Units (ICUs)
- Labor and Delivery
- Cardiovascular Progressive Care
- Medical Cardiology Step-Down
Talk with your nurse about the visiting hours specific to your unit and communicate any special needs or concerns you may have. Guests visiting a patient receiving care in a specialized area should contact the information desk at 828-213-1001 for visitation guidelines. You may also directly contact the nursing unit where the patient is staying for more detailed information.
