Visitor Restrictions Are Now In Place at Mission Health Hospitals As we often do during heavy influenza outbreaks, we’ve had visitor restrictions in place to protect our patients and loved ones as the COVID-19 virus has reached the US. Beginning Saturday, March 21 at 7 p.m., we will be tightening visitation even further. Until further notice, we will no longer allow visitors at any Mission Health Hospital. We have made exceptions for our pediatric, Labor & Delivery and end of life care, including those in CarePartners Solace Center, who can have one adult visitor with them at a time. The health and safety of our patients and team members is our top priority and we are taking this very seriously. We know this may be difficult and wish the situation were different; however, we’re taking every precaution to protect you and your loved ones. This situation is evolving very rapidly, and we continue to work in partnership with our local and state health department to monitor things closely. We will share any further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, we are here for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything we can do to help you feel more connected to your loved ones while you’re with us. Surgical Escorts Most Mission Health hospitals will be resuming surgeries and procedures beginning Monday, May 4. On Tuesday, May 5, Mission Hospital in Asheville plans to reopen its Entrance 2 surgical waiting area in the North Tower for scheduled patients. All Mission Health facilities will be providing patients with specific instructions about where to arrive and what to expect. Patients arriving for these procedures will be allowed to have one adult accompany them into the waiting area. All patients and their escorts will be screened and provided masks upon entry. The escorts will be able to assist patients in the waiting area and, if discharged the same day, will be with them at discharge as well. The escorts will have the option to wait outside the facility if they prefer, and will be called with updates when the procedure is complete. Each hospital may establish specific additional logistics for the escorts and will communicate that to them upon arrival.
