At The Woman's Hospital of Texas, we want to provide you and your loved ones with the best healthcare experience possible. We remain diligent in our fight against coronavirus (COVID-19) and the health and safety of our patients, caregivers and communities is our top priority.
While we understand the importance of in-hospital patients having family members and loved ones by their side, the following visitor policy is necessary in order to best protect patients and those providing care.
Currently visitors are not allowed in The Woman’s Hospital of Texas with the exception of:
- Laboring mothers are allowed one support person throughout delivery and postpartum.
- Pediatric patients are allowed one parent throughout care.
- NICU patients are permitted one parent at bedside.
- Pre/post-surgery patients are allowed a designated support person.
All support persons must complete a successful screening process at the West Tower before entering the hospital. They must also wear a mask and adhere to the 6 ft. social distancing guidelines for the duration of the visit.
We also encourage communication through virtual visitation to stay connected from a distance.
Exceptions to the one visitor policy will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If a patient or family member has an extenuating circumstance, we will work with them to help accommodate their needs.
We appreciate everyone's patience and support.
Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient’s treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
