Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Scheduling & Visitor Restrictions

Baptist Health System facilities remain open to care for patients who require in-person visits and time-sensitive care. Adjustments to scheduled procedures and appointments will be made as requested by the physician, patient or as required by official local or national public health authorities. Thank you for understanding our need to take these measures for the safety of all.

Visitor Restrictions

Given the increase in COVID patients, we are reinstituting a restricted visitation policy at all Baptist Health System hospitals beginning Monday, January 11.
Exceptions include:
  • In the Emergency Department, pediatric and neonatal patients and patients with disabilities may have one support person.
  • Labor and Delivery, Postpartum, Antepartum, Acute Rehab Unit, and HealthLink patients as well as patients at end of life and patients with disabilities may have one support person.
  • Visitors on Military Deployment are allowed.
  • Surgery/Procedure Patients requiring overnight care.
  • Designated visitor – those whose presence provide critical assistance and are essential to maintaining safety and who are a part of the patient’s care, well-being, and recovery process.
  • Pediatric & NICU Inpatients - Two ID banded parents can remain with the patient.
* No minors under the age of 16 will be allowed. Children of antepartum patients will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The designated Visitor is able to remain with patient during Visiting Hours except for patients in isolation for COVID-19. (Refer to the exception at the bottom of this page for patients with disabilities). Each designated visitor will be given one Visitor Pass card, which must be presented along with proof of identification at the entrance screening station each day. They must display their Visitor Badge label so that it can be seen. They must wear a mask at all times and remain in the patient’s room.

Visiting Hours will be from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily, however pediatric and NICU parents can remain with their children at all times and a support person for patients in active labor. Designated Visitors of patients with disabilities can remain with the patient at all times. Patients in active labor may have a designated visitor remain with them.

All approved visitors upon entry to the hospital will be screened for temperature, respiratory symptoms, possible exposure and pending Coronavirus test results. Approved visitors will not be granted access for failed or refused screening.

Exceptions to the restricted visitation guidelines may be made on an individual basis by hospital executive leadership after careful evaluation of any clinical and/or ethical concerns. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Restrictions for Hospital Entry/Exit

We are limiting hospital entry points to facilitate employee, physician, visitor and vendor screening and community safety.

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.
