Effective immediately, the Detroit Medical Center has updated its visitor restrictions.
For inpatients at DMC Harper University Hospital, DMC Heart Hospital, DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, DMC Hutzel Women’s Hospital, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital, and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, two support persons will be allowed to visit per day. They must be 12 or older.
Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days per week.
Visitors must enter through the main entrance at all DMC hospitals and attest they do not have any signs and symptoms of COVID-19. All visitors must wear a mask or other cloth face covering in patient care areas regardless of vaccination status. Individuals not in compliance with the masking policy will not be allowed to enter the patient care area. All visitors must practice proper hand hygiene and will be asked to maintain proper social distancing.
Visitors are allowed two support persons per day for those hospitalized patients who are suspected or test positive for COVID-19.
Exceptions to the new policy will be handled on an individual basis under the guidance of the direct care team.
The visitation policy at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan and the DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan has not changed.
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.
