Visitor Restrictions

Thank you for your understanding as we strive to keep our patients, families, visitors and associates healthy and safe.

Indiana is experiencing a significant increase in respiratory virus illnesses including RSV, influenza (commonly known as flu) as well as COVID-19. In an effort to protect our patients, families, visitors and associates, Ascension St. Vincent is implementing updated temporary Visitor Restrictions, effective Thursday, December 21, 2023.

This temporary restriction at our sites of care will assist us in limiting the spread of respiratory viruses, ensuring that we are best equipped to provide exceptional care to our patients.

In alignment with the latest recommendations from public health authorities and city and state officials, visitation at Ascension St. Vincent will be limited based on the following criteria:

  • No visitors with respiratory-like illness, fever or cough
  • No visitors under the age of 18 (unless they are a parent of a patient)
  • Limited to two (2) visitors at a time

Ascension St. Vincent has implemented additional visitor restrictions for the safety of the Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care patients in our care:

  • Visitation will be limited to two visitors at a time, who may be any of:
    • two (2) parents/guardians and,
    • four (4) designated adults identified by the parents/guardians, not to exceed a total of six (6) designated adults

We will continue to monitor the respiratory virus activity in the communities/counties and lift these restrictions as soon as it is safe to do so. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Should you have questions or concerns requiring special consideration, please reach out to your loved one's nurse.
