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.

Kidney Transplant Program

Waiting for Kidney Transplant

Once a patient is placed on the transplant waiting list, it is important that the kidney transplant program be notified of any changes in the patient’s condition such as:

  • Surgeries and procedures.
  • Active infections.
  • New medical diagnoses.
  • Hospitalizations.
  • Addition of anticoagulant medications (blood thinners).

It is also important for the transplant program to receive any updated testing results that have been performed on the patient, such as:

  • Cardiology testings.
  • New imaging studies (i.e. CT scans, etc.).

It is very important that patients waiting for transplant contact our office with any changes in their address, phone number or insurance information.

Our program has a designated waitlist coordinator who contacts each patient monthly to check-in proactively to ask of any such changes.

Please call 302-623-3866 if you wish to provide an update to us.
