  • 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.

What to Expect from an In-Person Visit

When you come to see us, you will experience a welcoming environment that’s a little different.

Before your appointment, you will answer some COVID-19 screening questions through secured text messaging or at the door. Our team will let you know when you are cleared to come into the office.

Your support person can help you get into the office, but they should plan to wait in the car during your appointment. You should plan to wear a face mask throughout your appointment.

After your appointment, our team will assist you in getting back to your car.
