Things to consider if planning a visit to the hospital

To prevent the spread of seasonal flu, intestinal viral illnesses and other infectious diseases in our communities, please follow these guidelines:

–Do not visit the hospital if you or members of your household are sick, especially from upper respiratory infection (coughing, sneezing, congestion) or gastrointestinal illness (vomiting, nausea, diarrhea).

–Note that intensive care, maternity units and other areas of the hospital have specific visiting guidelines.

–Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after visiting patients.

–Please ask for a mask while visiting our Emergency Department.

Thank you for helping us keep our patients, visitors and communities healthy.

What else can you do to prevent the spread of germs?

  1. WMMC asks that the public limit their non-medical care visits to our medical center for the safety of our patients, staff and themselves. Additionally, patients and visitors will be asked questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and may be given a mask or not permitted to enter as appropriate.
  2. Are you apart of the project #TeamUp2CleanUp? This project challenges all businesses and community members to clean all high-touch areas for two minutes, two times a day. Learn more about the project here.
  3. Listen to what Darinda Dick, CEO, has to say on what WMMC is doing proactively against the COVID-19. If you are not ill, please avoid coming to the hospital unless you are seeking treatment from a provider.
