Full visitor restrictions, visitor screening and masking
When you do visit our clinics and facilities, here's what to expect:
- You will be screened and asked to wear a mask. Clean cloth masks are available to borrow at the registration tables.
- Non-essential guests and visitors will not be allowed
- You may be asked to wait in your car
We are temporarily not allowing visitors to accompany or visit patients so we can keep everyone as safe as possible and limit the spread of illness.
Per the directive issued by the State of Montana, out-of-state residents who have not completed the mandatory 14-day self-quarantine and anyone who has traveled out of Montana in that last 14 days will not be allowed to visit or accompany patients at St. Peter’s Health. iPads are available for patients so they can communicate with loved ones while hospitalized.
There are a few exceptions to this temporary policy restricting visitors:
- Legal/custodial parent/guardian may accompany minors seeking care
- Two visitors per end-of-life care situation at any time*
- One support person for labor and delivery patients on the Women and Children’s Unit
- One essential* caregiver for Emergency Room patients
- One essential* caregiver for Urgent Care patients
- One essential* caregiver for essential clinic visits at all ambulatory locations
* Essential caregivers include parents/guardians of minor patients, or caregivers assisting the elderly or people with disabilities. Out-of-state and travel visitor restrictions do apply to end-of-life care situations.
All public entrances to the Regional Medical Center (except the Emergency Room and Urgent Care) will close at 6:00 p.m. until further notice. The Main and East entrances will be closed during the weekend (please use Emergency Department entrance).
St. Peter’s Health is asking that patients who are exhibiting COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms NOT visit the organization’s Broadway Clinic at 2550 Broadway or the North Clinic located at 3330 Ptarmigan Lane. This will allow these clinics to continue to safely care for patients that do not have COVID-19 and flu-like symptoms.
