What is Wilmot's Current Visitor Policy?

Aug. 24, 2021
Visitation policy at Wilmot as of July 11, 2022

We understand how important loved ones are when it comes to cancer. However, people with cancer are among the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19. Knowing this, it is our responsibility to protect our patients and our employees by limiting visitation. 

If you are coming to an appointment: 

  • Patients coming in for a clinic appointment may have one visitor (age 18 or older), when waiting room space allows. If waiting area space is too full, visitors may be asked to wait in their car until the visit begins. 
  • In the infusion center, 1 visitor is allowed at a time with the patient. 
  • Visitors are not currently permitted in the radiation therapy waiting area because of the limited space available. 

All visitors must go through a screening station before entering and must wear a medical mask while in the hospital; cloth masks are not permitted. If you do not have a medical mask, one will be provided to you. Wear your mask correctly; nose and mouth must be covered. 

Please ask a staff member if you have questions. 

If you are admitted to the hospital and staying overnight

  • Hospitalized patients may identify up to 4 visitors throughout the hospital stay; only one visitor is permitted at the bedside per day. Visiting hours are anytime between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 
  • All visitors must be at least 18 years old.
  • To keep everyone safe, medical masks are required.
  • Individuals who are sick or believe they may have COVID may not visit. Visitors will be asked to attest that they are symptom/COVID free.

​There are limited exceptions, such as for patients with developmental disabilities or cognitive impairment, pediatric patients, and end-of-life care. Please speak with your care team if you have questions.
