Visitor Guide

Visiting Guidelines During COVID-19

Though many of us may be longing for face-to-face contact with our family, friends and coworkers, the best tool we have in the fight against COVID-19 is to limit person-to-person interaction. While Holland Hospital has reopened several services, we continue to follow state and federal health and safety mandates related to the pandemic.

Safety is our Priority

Today, as always, we pledge to keep the safety of all patients, visitors and staff a priority. Holland Hospital is extending visitor guidelines at the hospital and our health care facilities through at least May 31, 2020. The following visitor policy is in effect until further notice:

Inpatient and Boven Birth Center

  • Patients in intensive/critical care are allowed one visitor.
  • Expectant mothers are allowed one support person during their stay at Boven Birth Center. Special Care Nursery visits are limited to the birth parent and one support person.
  • Patients younger than 18 years of age are allowed one parent, foster parent or guardian visitor.


  • Patients undergoing outpatient surgery or procedures may have one person with them.
  • Patients under18—or any patient requiring special assistance—may have one person with them for lab, radiology or other hospital-based appointments.

Emergency Department

One visitor is only allowed for:

  • Minors under 18
  • Obstetric patients
  • Patients dependent upon a family member for their care
  • Patients with serious injuries or illnesses (at the discretion of ED care team; if the patient is admitted, the visitor will not be allowed on the inpatient unit unless one of the above exceptions apply)

For all other ED patients, visitors will be asked to wait in their car.


  • Patients under18—or any patient requiring special assistance—may have one person with them for offsite lab, radiology or physician office appointments.

* Please note: we are not allowing visitors under the age of 16. Allowed visitors will be screened for COVID-19/respiratory-related symptoms and required to wear a face mask before entering. Visitors must also remain in the patient’s room for the duration of their visit.
