Scheduling & Visitor Restrictions

Emanuel Medical Center remains open to care for patients who require in-person visits and time-sensitive care. Adjustments to scheduled procedures and appointments will be made as requested by the physician, patient or as required by local or national public health authorities. Thank you for understanding our need to take these measures for the safety of all.

Current Visitor Policy

Emanuel Medical Center is committed to taking the necessary and critical steps to ensure patients, visitors and staff in our hospital are safe and remain healthy. The California Department of Public Health recently issued guidance for hospitals to allow visitors to return to hospitals.

Effective Friday, April 2, 2021, the following visitor policy will be in place:

  • All patients are allowed two visitors per room
  • Visiting hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily
  • Visitors must be 14 years of age or older
  • Exceptions to the visitor policy may be made for end of life patients and other extenuating circumstances

Visitors may enter through the Main Lobby or Emergency Departments. All visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon entry. Visitors are required to wear a mask at all times while in the facility. Visitors must stay in the patient area or designated waiting area and follow social distancing requirements. Visitors will not be allowed to congregate in common areas. Any visitor not meeting screening criteria will not be permitted to enter the hospital.

Visitors are not allowed for COVID-19 patients and those under investigation.

Emanuel Medical Center is committed to keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

Entry and exit is limited to the main lobby and emergency room only.

An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
