Based on the rapid increase in COVID 19 cases on St. Thomas, Schneider Regional Medical Center will immediately restrict visitation to virtual visits only to protect its vulnerable patients and its staff, who are working tirelessly to provide care.
As a result of this, the public advised that the previous visitation restrictions have been reinstated, and some previously approved in-person visitations are now suspended based on the current environment. However, there will be limited exceptions to these restrictions. For example, SRMC has enhanced its virtual visits program and will make every effort to connect our patients to their loved ones upon request.
The leadership team of SRMC would like to assure the public that they are taking all preventative measures to ensure the safety and welfare of all patients and staff.
