Gundersen suspends all hospital and clinic visitors
Gundersen Health System understands the importance of engaging families as part of the healing process. However, to protect our patients, staff and community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are restricting all visitors to our Hospitals, Emergency Services and Clinics until further notice.
Our policy is in line with other state and national guidelines to limit gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Anyone dropping off and picking up patients should wait outside unless they need support in communicating.
There will still be exceptions for end-of-life, interpreter/communication needs, surgery, Labor and Delivery, emergency room and pediatric patients.
Visitor restrictions are temporary and may change as Gundersen monitors the COVID-19 situation locally, regionally and nationally.
