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.

ChristianaCare Neurosciences

Epilepsy Center

If you or a loved one has a seizure disorder, you can find exceptional care right here in Delaware. The ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center treats adults with seizure disorders, including complex epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Center:

  • Earned Level 3 designation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers — a first for a center of its kind in Delaware. This accreditation is awarded to epilepsy centers that have the professional expertise and facilities to provide medical evaluation and treatment to patients with complex epilepsy in inpatient and outpatient settings.
  • Opened the state’s first adult Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, where our clinical team monitors patients with uncontrolled seizure disorders 24/7 to determine their source. With this information, they can develop treatment plans to better control seizures.
  • Offers electroencephalography (EEG), accredited by the Lab Accreditation Board of ABRET, to monitor brain activity.

The ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center uses a patient-focused approach to diagnose epilepsy and provide ongoing care. Outpatient services for routine care are within the outpatient neurology offices located in the HealthCare Center at Christiana, across the street from Christiana Hospital.
