Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center is adjusting visitation beginning Tuesday, November 1. This guideline change welcomes all care partners and support persons in most locations. Visiting hours are 9 am through 9 pm for inpatient units. Please see below for visitation in specific areas such as Surgical Services, Labor and Delivery, Mother Baby, Pediatrics, Emergency Department and Outpatient Practices.
The pediatric department at Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center is experiencing very high volumes which are expected to continue through the winter. One parent or guardian may be asked to go to an alternative waiting area in the hospital if space does not allow for both parents or both guardians to stay in the pediatric department.
Luminis Health requires care partners and support persons to wear a procedural mask when visiting our facilities. If you do not have a procedural mask, we will provide one for you. Cloth masks are no longer accepted as they provide a lower level of protection than the procedural mask.
Caring for and protecting our patients, families, employees, and the community during COVID-19 is of the utmost importance. All care partners and support persons will be required to wear an appropriate mask while in the hospital (even if vaccinated) and will be required to wash or sanitize their hands throughout their visit. Eating is permitted in patient rooms but not permitted in patient care areas or waiting areas.
As a patient- and family-centered organization, we will continue to review and update our visitation guidelines and practices as the situation changes.
