Updated hospital visitation restrictions
Ballad Health is currently allowing 2 visitors for each patient at a time.
Please note that this only applies to inpatient hospital units and surgery. Labor and delivery units will allow 1 support person and 2 visitors per room.
Visitation for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 or who are under investigation is limited to 1 designated visitor for the length of their hospitalization. Visits are limited to two hours and must be scheduled ahead of time. Exceptions include:
- COVID-19 positive patients in labor and delivery units, who will be allowed one visitor during the entirety of their hospital stay
- COVID-19 positive patients in the neonatal intensive care unit at Niswonger Children's Hospital and in pediatric rooms, who will be allowed two visitors that must be parents/guardians
Inpatient support persons – or visitors – will only be allowed on site from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. However, one visitor may remain with the patient overnight, and this visitor must be in the facility prior to 8 p.m. Visitors who remain with the patient after 8 p.m. will stay in the patient room. If the visitor remaining with the patient after 8 p.m. leaves the facility at any point during the night, they will not be permitted for re-entry until 8 a.m.
Exceptions may be made during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of-life care.
Screenings and face mask requirements
Each visitor will be screened for potential signs of illness and required to wear a cloth face covering, which they need to provide for themselves.
Due to the increased risk of virus transmission, masks with vents and/or valves are not permitted.
These measures are to help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Indian Path opened its doors in 1974, with the first two patients being treated on March 1. It began as part of Hospital Corporation of America (HCA)
The hospital was named after a trail that Native Americans traveled, which crossed through the east side of what is now Kingsport. There are shadow boxes next to the elevator that displays the Native American artifacts found during the digging of Indian Path’s foundation.
In September 1998, Indian Path became part of Mountain States Health, which was formed as a non-profit entity after Johnson City Medical Center purchased six for-profit hospitals in the region.
This seven-story facility has grown to include 178 operating beds and offers an array of services including emergency services, lung nodule clinic, surgical services, family birthing services and a dedicated spine center.
