Important hospital information during COVID-19
We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19.
For safety reasons, we only allow one adult visitor per patient, per day. No visitors are allowed for patients with COVID-19. Exceptions to these policies include:
• Newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
• Birth center patients: Two support persons, including a doula (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
• Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
• Compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)
We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or setting up Google Duo (PDF). Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.
If you need in-person or emergency care, don’t delay. We’re open and ready to care for you, with rigorous safety and cleaning protocols in place to help keep you healthy. To see if you should be tested for COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 testing page.
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. Schedule an appointment online or call your clinic.

Visiting Hospital Patients
To ensure quiet, healing time for patients, others who wish to visit are welcome at the discretion of the patient and their medical team.
Hudson Hospital & Clinic recognizes the vital role family and friends play in health and recovery during a hospital stay. We commit to providing visitation in accordance with our non-discrimination policy, which provides access without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, disability, age, religion, marital status, citizenship, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and/or other legally protected classificiation. In partnership with your physician, hospital staff work with patients and families to set visiting hours that best meet the needs of the patient. Patient rooms are available with sleeper sofas to accommodate close family wishing to be present with patients overnight.
Should after-hour visits be needed after 8 p.m. or before 7 a.m., the hospital has access via the south Emergency Care Center entrance.
