ChristianaCare

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.

Pulmonary Function Lab

Pulmonary Function Lab

We want you to breathe easy. When you can’t, ChristianaCare’s Pulmonary Function Laboratory helps your doctor figure out why.

ChristianaCare is recognized by the American Association for Respiratory Care as a Quality Respiratory Care institution. Only about 15 percent of hospitals nationwide earn this award for relying on specially-trained therapists to deliver respiratory services and following other national standards recommended by the association.

Your doctor can order our lab to perform a variety of tests to evaluate your respiratory system. These tests are used to:

  • Determine lung health.
  • Diagnose and monitor the progression of lung conditions and diseases, including shortness of breath, asthma and lung cancer.
  • Assess readiness for surgery.
  • Monitor side effects of radiation therapy or drug therapy.
  • Verify effectiveness of treatment for lung disease.
  • Determine level of disability.
  • Enter a pulmonary rehabilitation program.
