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 a precautionary measure during the COVID-19 pandemic, a maximum of four visitors at a time are allowed to a patient that is not positive for the COVID-19 virus nor suspected to have the virus. All others must remain outside the building. For visitors to a patient with a COVID-19 positive diagnosis or suspected to have the virus, a maximum of two visitors per patient are allowed provided proper staffing and personal protective equipment (PPE) is available. We reserve the right to reduce or pause visitation. All others must remain outside the building. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe and healthy.
