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.

Comprehensive Pain Center

ChristianaCare’s Comprehensive Pain Center offers a wide range of non-opioid treatment options for patients with acute and chronic pain.

Our providers at the outpatient center are committed to offering therapies focused on alleviating pain while supporting ChristianaCare’s mission to reduce dependence on opioid medications. We understand that chronic pain is complex and often challenging to treat. As such, we use a multimodal, multidisciplinary pain treatment strategy focused on improving function.

Services at the Comprehensive Pain Center include:

  • Consultations for opioid-tapering strategies to help patients reduce their dependence on high-dose opioid therapy.
  • Integrative therapies, including osteopathic manipulation (stretching, gentle pressure and resistance), myofascial release (massage, gentle pressure), acupuncture and anti-inflammatory supplements.
  • Referrals to outpatient group psychology sessions that offer mind/body strategies to reduce or eliminate pain; these include changing the perception of pain or learning breathing and relaxation techniques.
  • Referrals to our new chronic pain-focused physical therapy program, available at multiple ChristianaCare sites.
  • Interventional therapies, including epidural steroid injections, joint injections, trigger-point injections, radiofrequency ablations and more.

Minimally invasive outpatient procedures are performed in both the office setting under ultrasound guidance and at the Christiana Surgicenter in MAP 2.

If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, ask your doctor for a referral to the Comprehensive Pain Center. We look forward to helping you feel better.
