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.

Lipid Clinic

Cholesterol is present in everyone and is needed for normal bodily functions. However, abnormal levels of cholesterol, such as high LDL (“bad cholesterol”), low HDL (“good cholesterol”), and high triglycerides, are risk factors for heart disease and stroke. The Advanced Lipid Clinic at ChristianaCare can work with you to lower your risks if you have:

  • Recurrent heart disease or stroke even after typical treatment.
  • Difficulty tolerating statin medicines.
  • Family history of early heart disease.
  • Genetic lipid disorders, such as familial hypercholesterolemia.
  • Other lipid disorders, such as very high triglycerides or high lipoprotein (a).

Our care team will work closely with you to make the treatment plan that is best for you and your needs. The clinic services include:

  • Screening and testing
  • Education and support for lifestyle changes (diet, exercise and quitting smoking).
  • Specialized treatment with the newest medicines.
  • Optional participation in studies.
