About Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)


The DMC is working closely with local health departments, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential coronavirus cases in our area. We routinely treat infectious diseases at the DMC. We have strong infection control policies, procedures, and systems in place to screen and treat patients. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff, and our community safe. For more information about the coronavirus, go to the CDC website or www.michigan.gov/coronavirus

 

Visitor Restrictions

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, one support person 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.

As patients and visitors enter the hospital, they will be asked screening questions, have their temperature taken, are required to wear a face mask, will be asked to sanitize their hands, and must observe social distancing.

Visitors are not allowed for those hospitalized patients who test positive for COVID-19 or those who have symptoms.

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.
