All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

Feeling Creative? Host Your Own Special Event to Support ChristianaCare

Do you have a unique fundraising idea that your friends and family would enjoy?

If you want to take that extra step to customize an event—whether it’s a 5K run, an afternoon tea, a beef and beer, or something completely different—we can help you get started and show you ways to make it a success!

Getting Started

Any individual or organization wishing to conduct a fundraising event or promotion involving the use of the name ChristianaCare must receive written approval from the Office of Development in advance. The approval process can take up to four weeks.

Our experienced staff will be happy to meet with you to help you conceptualize your event, as well as assist in designating a specific area of interest that is meaningful to you.

It will then be up to you (and whatever friends are helping you) to get to work!

  • Social media makes it faster and easier than ever before to develop your mailing lists and spread the news of your event.
  • You will obtain necessary permits, license, and insurance coverage (Note: we will provide a letter of authorization to validate the event authenticity for insurance purposes. We will not provide reimbursement).
  • You will staff your event and solicit celebrity attendance or vendor support/sponsorship for your fundraising activities.
  • We can approve use of the Christiana care logo, provide ChristianaCare letterhead and publicize the event within ChristianaCare.

What are the guidelines for planning my event?

As a not for profit, ChristianaCare follows certain federal guidelines and IRS regulations for charitable giving and acknowledgements. Events must complement the mission, image and core values of ChristianaCare and be approved in writing.
