  • Important Information for Hospital Visitors

    Visiting hours vary by location. ​Labor & Delivery and Maternity patients may have one partner present at all times. Exceptions will be made for pediatrics, oncology and other special circumstances. One visitor may accompany patients at our outpatient locations, including outpatient surgery centers, urgent care centers and physician practices, when social distancing is possible. ​ Please note that all visitors must be 18 or older and will be screened. Masks will be provided and are required to be worn at all times. Visitor hours are subject to change.
  • Elective Procedures, Surgeries, Endoscopies

    Elective surgeries and procedures at our hospitals requiring overnight stays are being evaluated daily across our inpatient facilities based on the capacity of each hospital. We will communicate directly with any patient whose surgery or procedure may need to be rescheduled. Any surgery or procedure that is taking place in an outpatient location will not be impacted at this time.

Calling All COVID-19 Survivors: Plasma Donations Needed.

If you have recovered from COVID-19, you may be able to help patients suffering from coronavirus today. It’s as simple as donating your plasma.

Baptist Health hospitals use convalescent plasma (plasma collected from people who have recovered from coronavirus), to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients not responding to other therapies. Antibodies present in recovered patients have lifesaving potential, helping boost a patient’s immune system so that they can better fight the virus.

Convalescent plasma donations are urgently needed. If you have recovered from coronavirus, please consider donating your plasma.
