IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Updated hospital visitation restrictions

Please note that this only applies to inpatient hospital units and surgery. Outpatient services will continue to allow 1 visitor for each patient.

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 in labor and delivery, emergency departments where one guest is permitted at all times, and during extenuating circumstances or in the case of end-of-life care. As previously stated, this provision only includes:

  • Inpatient hospital units
  • Surgery

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).

History

The Johnson County Community Hospital of today is an example of perseverance and a passion by the community to keep its own hospital alive. It has been housed in several different buildings, operating with different sets of services under different names and was closed down completely on two occasions.

After the old Johnson County Hospital was shuttered, the hospital was acquired by Mountain States Health and reopened in 1998 as Johnson County Community Hospital. With the support of Mountain States the facility found stability while providing the people of the community with the health care services they need.
