Deaconess Adds New Visitor Guidelines

Henderson, Ky 3/17/21- In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the critical importance of protecting patients and staff, Deaconess Henderson will follow state and national recommendations.

New Visitor Guidelines were effective 3/15/21

“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Deaconess must protect our patients, visitors and employees from coronavirus infection by limiting visitors into our hospitals and clinics. While other facilities and businesses are operating under certain “reopening” guidelines, we are different.  We’re a healthcare organization.  That means people who are already ill or otherwise compromised are inside this building, right now.  We have been entrusted by all of our patients and their loved ones to keep them safe. These are challenging times, and we look forward to being able to welcome more visitors through our doors.  Until that time comes, thank you for your support and cooperation as we work to keep Deaconess a safe place to both receive and provide care.”
