Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Here for you and ready to help.
Care is available in many ways, including video visits. You can talk with your doctor and receive the same personalized care, expert answers and a treatment plan tailored to you. We’re also offering in-person visits, phone visits and our 24/7 online clinic, virtuwell.com.
We’re also offering convenient COVID-19 drive-up testing at several locations across our care system. Take our online screening to determine if you should be tested. For more information on COVID-19 visit our COVID-19 information page.
Have visitor guidelines changed for hospitals and clinics?
In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our clinics and hospitals. We’re also performing wellness screenings at every entrance.
For Hudson Hospital, HealthPartners and Park Nicollet hospitals, no visitors are currently allowed, with the following exceptions:
- For newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians
- For birth center patients: One support person
- For compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients): Hospital discretion used for other exceptions
- For clinic patients, we’re limiting visitors at our clinics to one guardian of pediatric patients or one caregiver of patients who require assistance
All visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. If you are sick, you will not be allowed to visit patients. We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or phone.
Our Emergency Center is staffed 24/7 with board-certified emergency medicine physicians. The Emergency Center is equipped to handle a wide range of emergency medical needs with your trust and comfort in mind. Should your care require the most specialized treatment, we have quick and coordinated air and ground transport to Regions Hospital Level I Trauma Center and Burn Center, or the hospital of your choice.
As a Level IV Trauma Center, our care goes beyond the walls of the hospital and includes active leadership and participation in community projects. Hudson Hospital & Clinic promotes healthy lifestyles and living through safety and health education workshops, safety screenings, cardiopulmonary resuscitation classes, and disaster preparedness projects in partnership with the city, county and state.
Accessing our Emergency Center during construction
We’re expanding emergency care for our community. Construction starts in September 2019. You can still access our Emergency Center off Center Drive. The temporary entrance is relocated about 100 feet to the left of the regular Emergency Center entrance. Access is clearly marked inside and outside the building. Check out the route and parking map here.
