Flu Season Visitor Restriction

Visitors temporarily restricted to age 16 or older

As a safety first organization, ChristianaCare is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Tuesday, Jan. 21. This temporary restriction protects patients, their loved ones and health care workers during this time of extremely high number of influenza cases and other respiratory illnesses circulating in our community.

The new restrictions limit visitors to patients in Christiana and Wilmington hospitals to persons age 16 or older. Children and teens younger than 16 years are most likely to get the flu and remain contagious longer than adults. This restriction does not apply to outpatient and ambulatory services.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu)

Temporalmente solo se permiten los visitantes mayores de 16 años.

Como una organización que promueve la seguridad ante todo, ChristianaCare está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 21 de enero. Esta restricción temporal protege a los pacientes, a sus seres queridos y al personal de cuidados de salud durante esta época con un número extremadamente alto de casos de influenza y de otras enfermedades respiratorias que circulan en nuestra comunidad.

Las nuevas restricciones, en los hospitales Christiana y Wilmington, sólo permiten visitas a pacientes de personas mayores de 16 años. Los niños y adolescentes menores de 16 años son más propensos a contraer el flu y son contagiosos por más tiempo que los adultos. Esta restricción no aplica a las áreas de servicios ambulatorios.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

How Can We Help

Personalized Care

At Christiana Care, we are dedicated to delivering the safest and most effective gynecological treatment and care available. After a complete assessment, a personalized treatment plan is prepared for every patient.

Everything we do is centered on you and your individual needs. As partners with you and your health care team, we can offer you exceptional care that incorporates the best practices and best technology available. Our services include:

General Gynecology – With services including family planning, contraception, treatment of menopause-related symptoms and routine exams and pap tests.

Pap Smear (Pap Tests) – Getting regularly scheduled pap smears is an effective method for preventing and detecting cancer of the cervix, the cylinder of tissue that connects the vagina and uterus.

A pap smear is a simple, painless test to screen for precancerous lesions on the cervix, as well as actual cancer.

Pap smears also save lives. Cervical cancer progresses very slowly and pap smears alert doctors to abnormal cells that can be treated before they actually become cancerous. In the last 50 years, due to widespread screening, the incidence of cervical cancer has fallen almost 50 percent in the United States.

Hysterectomy – If you’re suffering from symptoms such as heavy, frequent periods, uterine fibroids, a prolapsed womb or cancer of the vagina and related systems, you may need to undergo a hysterectomy to remove the womb. As one of the most common gynecological operations, we are able to guide and support you throughout the entire process so that you can remain calm, confident and healthy at all times.
