Visiting Hours and Guidelines
In an effort to reduce the spread of germs throughout the hospital during the current influenza season, TCMC has revised the Visitation Policy. Effective immediately, there will be no visitors age 14 years and younger allowed in patient care areas. Signage is posted at the Security Desk and the Volunteer Desk in the Front Lobby. Thank you for your help in implementing this special consideration.
Visits from loved ones are an important part of the healing process. We encourage friends and family at Tri-City Medical Center, subject to certain guidelines.
Please keep our patients safe by not visiting when you are ill.
