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.

Exceptional Experience

Creating an outstanding patient experience has long been a familiar aim for everyone at ChristianaCare. The strategic aim Exceptional Experience recognizes that not everyone is ready to identify themselves as a patient. When we’re not in a hospital bed or a doctor’s office, most of us think of ourselves as people — not patients. As we move outside the walls of our hospitals and facilities to address the health of the community, our efforts to improve the experience of health care must follow suit. How do we reach out? How do we understand what’s important to the people we serve? How can we personalize their experience? Exceptional Experience challenges us to work together to find new ways of providing care that our neighbors value.
