Hospital and Clinic Visitor Policy (Effective January 2023)
The safety of patients, visitors, and staff continue to be our top priority.
By limiting the number of visitors and controlling the number of visits in and out of our facility, we are better able to provide a safe environment for all of our patients, visitors, and healthcare team members.
Everyone at Magnolia Regional Health Center (MRHC) is committed to keeping our patients, visitors, and staff safe at all times. Therefore, visitation is restricted for all patients, with further clarification for specific facilities and units to protect our patients, visitors, and staff. Support by loved ones plays a vital role in the healing and recovery process, and we understand the importance of patients having access to their loved ones while receiving care at our hospital and clinics.
Effective January 2023, 2 visitors will be allowed per patient until 9 pm. Guests may resume visitation the next morning.
