Erie Shores HealthCare is ramping up some services.

The hospital is increasing access to surgical services and diagnostic imaging tests to 100% effective this coming Monday, February 22nd

Their visitor policy will also now allow for one essential visitor on our Inpatient Units within one of three designated blocks each day:

  • 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The hospital is allowing patients to have one essential visitor visit once per day in one specified time slot with some exceptions. The essential visitors may visit each day and only in one time slot.

All visitors must wear a mask when in hospital. Those who do not come in with one will be provided with one. All visitors are to follow all social distancing and Personal Protective Equipment requirements identified on the units while in hospital or they’ll be asked to leave.

In the Emergency Department (ED), a patient who is at imminent risk of dying may have a loved one present with them during their ED stay. Patients with cognitive or mobility difficulties may be
accompanied by one person during their ED stay. Pediatric patients in the Emergency Department are obviously permitted to be accompanied by one adult family member.
