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.

Patient & Visitor Guide

Understanding Hospital Fees

Committed to Value and Transparency

As a not-for-profit health system, our mission is one of service. We believe that the key to providing truly great health care is to partner with our patients and their families, building a system of care that is effective, affordable and valuable to everyone who is touched by it.

How do I find out what my procedure will cost?

Estimating the total cost of a procedure can be complicated because there may be more than one group that will bill for their services. For example, if you have a surgery, there may be a bill from the surgeon, anesthesiologist and hospital.

While estimating the bill is complicated, we are here to help you understand what you will be charged. If you would like an estimated cost before your surgery or procedure, please call our Customer Service line at 302-623-7185.

  • Please note the estimated cost may not include physician and possibly other fees that may be associated with your surgery or procedure.

What if I have insurance? What if I don’t have insurance?

If you have not yet reached your deductible or have questions about your insurance coverage, please contact your insurance company before you schedule your surgery or procedure.

If you don’t have insurance, ChristianaCare can help you learn more about your health insurance options. And, you can learn more about our financial assistance program here.

For other questions, please call 302-623-7440.
