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).

Our Community

At Home in The Heart of the Highlands

Nestled in the highlands of southwestern Virginia, you'll find a delightful town that we call home. As famous for its spectacular outdoor recreation as it is for its most famous product, Mountain Dew, Marion is the gateway to both Hungry Mother State Park and the highest peak in Virginia, Mount Rogers. Within miles of hiking and biking trails, stocked trout streams and a 500-acre mountain lake, Marion is an ideal place for a vacation – or to call home. Marion is also a place where no one remains a stranger very long, people work together for the common good, children can find wholesome activities and parents can find community support for cherished family values.
