UNC Health Southeastern expands visitation


UNC Health Southeastern has expanded visitation for the medical center, allowing two fully-vaccinated visitors at a time for non-COVID-19 patients while COVID-19 positive patients will be allowed one fully-vaccinated visitor per day.

Other changes to the guidelines include one fully-vaccinated visitor for Emergency Department patients. Laboring mothers are allowed two visitors, and two parents or legal guardians are allowed for minor patients. In both cases, one visitor will be allowed to remain with the patient after visiting hours have ended each day.

All medical center visitors must be age 18 or older and are required to be screened, present a valid photo I.D., and show proof of vaccination. All approved visitors must wear their visitor badge at all times.

Visiting hours remain 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Some vaccination exceptions apply in cases of birthing mothers, pediatric patients, end-of-life situations and patients with cognitive challenges.

UNC Health Southeastern clinics and outpatient affiliates will allow one visitor per patient.

WoodHaven Nursing, Alzheimer’s and Rehabilitation Center allows visitation, daily, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
