Visitors are no longer allowed in any Banner Health locations, to create a safe and secure environment for patients and health care workers during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Location visitors will no longer be allowed to visit include outpatient and ambulatory locations ranging from clinics and urgent care to imaging centers, surgical centers, and occupational health services locations. Banner Health is aware that this may be challenging but is committed to taking the necessary precautions to protect their patients, health care workers, and the community.
Three expectations of the visitor restriction at hospitals are as follows:
- Pediatric patients (under the age of 18) may have one adult visitor with them.
- Laboring mothers may have one support person with them.
- Individuals with physical or cognitive limitations or disabilities who require support may have one adult visitor with them.
All visitors will be subject to a health screening at all locations to ensure that they are not exhibiting respiratory illness symptoms. Banner Health has a COVID-19 webpage listed below that contains further information regarding COVID-19 and Banner Health changes due to the outbreak. There is also an online symptom checker for those who may be concerned about their symptoms.
