MWHC to allow one visitor for non-COVID-19 patients and in the Emergency Department
These visitation policies apply to all Mary Washington Healthcare (MWHC) facilities, including Mary Washington Hospital, Stafford Hospital, and Lee’s Hill Emergency Deparment.
At MWHC, we believe that the support from loved ones is important to our patients’ healing. As we continue to carefully open services, we are also carefully and thoughtfully loosening our visitor restrictions. One visitor is permitted per non-COVID inpatient or ED patient. Exceptions are outlined below.
