HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center Temporary Visitor Guideline

At the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center, we have the privilege to care for patients at end of life. Providing a welcoming and warm atmosphere is at the core of our care philosophy. As of Monday, March 20 we will be relaxing some of the COVID-19 infection prevention measures at the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center. We will no longer need to closely monitored the number of people in a room. We do, however, reserve the right to ensure that the number of room occupants is safe and conducive to a peaceful patient experience. All visitors are required to sign in and out and masks will continue to be required in patient areas including elevators, except when drinking or eating.

Up to two visitors can stay in a room overnight; those not staying overnight can remain in the room until 11:00 p.m. For patients who are on precautions (i.e., airborne precautions), the number of visitors are restricted to between 2 - 4 in a room for everyone’s safety. The first-floor entrance will be open during weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and remain closed nights and weekends. Complimentary coffee, tea, cookies, and muffins will continue to be available from the café on the 3rd floor. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe and healthy.
