Our highest priority is the health and safety of our patients, their families, and our team members.

Due to the continuing evolution of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation Hunterdon Healthcare is restricting visitation across all of its hospitals and facilities.

Visitation exceptions will be made in certain situations, including:

Maternity & Labor/Special Care Nursery: (only ONE significant other or adult support person)
Pediatric Unit: (only ONE parent/guardian)
Pediatric Psychiatric Patients: (only ONE if/when a mutual agreement between the parents/guardian and care team has been established)
Intensive Care Unit: (only ONE significant other or adult support person)
Outpatients: (only ONE adult support person/aide if required)
Medical Group Practices: (only ONE adult support person)
Hospice: Extenuating circumstances will be considered based on the best interest and needs of the patient.

The support person will be based on the patient’s choice. 

Once a visitor is approved, they will still need to complete our screening process for COVID-19 Symptoms, which includes fever (100 degrees or higher), cough, congestion sneezing, runny nose and/or trouble breathing. Phone and video calls to patients are welcome and encouraged.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but the health of our community is of our utmost concern.
