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.

at ChristianaCare

An advanced practice clinician is either a Physician Assistant or an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. Together we are known as APCs. We are valuable members of the health care team serving different patient populations in our hospitals, emergency rooms and community. We are educated, experienced and skilled to manage our patients and their health issues.

ChristianaCare provides APCs educational opportunities, mentoring support, leadership training and opportunities to grow in their role as an APC. APCs serve as preceptors to PA and APRN students across many medical specialties. APCs play an integral role in serving our patients and community with our core values of excellence and love.

As APCs continue to grow in numbers at ChristianaCare, so do the opportunities for the types of practices APCs are employed. At ChristianaCare, APCs work in wide range of sites including ambulatory practices, specialty services, hospitalist groups, intensive care units, surgical departments and obstetrical areas.

Currently there are almost 700 APCs working at ChristianaCare with over half employed by the Medical Group of ChristianaCare.

In the past 10 years our APC workforce has tripled. As the need for access to health care continues to grow, ChristianaCare anticipates the need for APCs will also continue to rise.
