Flu season visitor restriction – age 16 or older (Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu) – Mayores de 16 años.)

Flu Season Visitor Restriction

Visitors temporarily restricted to age 16 or older

As a safety first organization, Christiana Care is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Friday, Jan. 18. This temporary restriction protects patients, their loved ones and health care workers during this time of extremely high number of influenza cases and other respiratory illnesses circulating in our community.

The new restrictions limit visitors to patients in Christiana and Wilmington hospitals to persons age 16 or older. Children and teens younger than 16 years are most likely to get the flu and remain contagious longer than adults. This restriction does not apply to outpatient and ambulatory services. We began restricting visitors under the age of 16 years in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Women’s and Children’s areas on Jan. 18.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu)

Temporalmente solo se permiten los visitantes mayores de 16 años.

Como una organización que promueve la seguridad ante todo, Christiana Care está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 18 de enero. Esta restricción temporal protege a los pacientes, a sus seres queridos y al personal de cuidados de salud durante esta época con un número extremadamente alto de casos de influenza y de otras enfermedades respiratorias que circulan en nuestra comunidad.

Las nuevas restricciones, en los hospitales Christiana y Wilmington, sólo permiten visitas a pacientes de personas mayores de 16 años. Los niños y adolescentes menores de 16 años son más propensos a contraer el flu y son contagiosos por más tiempo que los adultos. Esta restricción no aplica a las áreas de servicios ambulatorios. Comenzamos la restricción de visitas a menores de 16 años en nuestra Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (NICU) y en las áreas para Mujeres y Niños desde el 18 de enero.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Medical Director of the Breast Center at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute

While it’s easy to become anxious if your doctor refers you to a breast surgeon, try to take a deep breath and relax. It’s true that breast surgeons treat breast cancer, but they also diagnose and treat many noncancerous breast problems, including breast pain, benign lumps and cysts, and abnormal mammograms.

Whatever diagnosis you are facing, you want to put your trust in the best hands possible. That’s why so many women turn to the Breast Surgeons at Concord Health Center. Led by board-certified surgeon Diana Dickson-Witmer, M.D., the practice offers expert, compassionate breast care that has helped many women in the region face their breast health challenges.

Breast Surgeons at Concord Health Center is a satellite office of the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, which has become both a regional leader and a national model in cancer care. Dr. Dickson-Witmer, the medical director of the Breast Center at the Graham Cancer Center, opened this office to give women in northern Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania easy access to care.

Dr. Dickson-Witmer and her team, including Michelle Kelly, certified physician assistant, specialize in breast surgery and are right here for you — offering compassionate care from diagnosis through postsurgical care.

The practice at Concord Health Center offers the added convenience of being in the same building as imaging services, including mammography, lab and radiation oncology.
