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.

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.

We have made several of our forms available for patients to download. Filling these out in advance of your first visit with a surgeon or the Breast Center will allow you to complete them at your convenience and bring them to the office on the day of your visit.

If you are new to either of our practices or haven’t had an office visit in greater than 6 months, we encourage you to download, print, and fill out the patient forms. We request that returning patients’ complete new medical history forms every 6 months to keep our records current. Upon arrival, please be prepared to review one additional form that is pertinent to the day of your appointment and update your contact information.

Please don’t forget your insurance card, driver’s license and referral with you to your appointment. If you have any questions about which form to fill out please call our office. Thank you. If you’re unable to open these files, you may need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader program.
