In order to further protect the health of patients, staff and the community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Heritage Valley Health System announces that effective immediately no visitation is permitted at its three hospitals– Heritage Valley Beaver, Heritage Valley Sewickley and Heritage Valley Kennedy.
The only exceptions to this policy will be for the Maternity / Obstetrics Units at Heritage Valley Sewickley and Beaver, where one visitor will be permitted, and for patients near the end of life.
In order to maintain the safety of our patients, families, and staff during this time the following
adjustments in ED visitation is effective immediately:
- One visitor per pediatric patient (18 years old or younger)
- One visitor per ambulance patient after the patient has been examined
- One visitor per patient if the patient is unable to communicate with staff
All other visitors accompanying patients should leave a cell phone number with Greeter and wait outside the ED or in their cars until care complete.
