We have implemented visitor restrictions at our facility as follows:

Hospital: To protect the health and wellness of our patients, providers, employees and all those who enter STRHS-Winchester, we are implementing updated visitor guidelines for our facilities, effective immediately and until further notice.  We want to assure our community that these changes are being made proactively out of an abundance of caution and to empower us to prevent the spread of illness:

  • We are reducing the entry point to only the emergency department entrance for all patients, visitors (if appropriate), and staff. 

  • The Anderton-Smith Building offices will be accessible via the lower level entrance, however, people who come in at this entrance will not be able to access the hospital unless they enter through the Emergency Department

  • The hospital has implemented a zero-visitor* protocol immediately (*some exceptions may apply (e.g. pediatric patients, obstetric patients and those receiving end-of-life care)

  • The hospital, hospital outpatient departments, and physician practices/clinics will begin screening all individuals who enter our facilities, per CDC guidelines – including patients, visitors (if appropriate) and staff – based on potential respiratory symptoms, travel history, and fever.
