As a result of COVID-19, Metro Health has implemented restrictions on visitors. These restrictions are in place for the health and safety of our patients, staff and fellow visitors. Please reference our visitor policy here for the most up-to-date information.
In most cases, Metro Health Hospital welcomes visitors 24 hours a day, based on patient preference. Some restrictions are necessary for patient rest and recovery. In the Childbirth Center, only one person may spend the night. In the Intensive Care Unit, please check at the nurses’ station before visiting a patient.
