Visitor Restrictions and Healthpark Reopening
The Next Steps to Improved Health
Visitor Restrictions Update
As Owensboro Health reopens services across the health system, we are updating our visitor restrictions. On Monday, we began allowing one support person with patients in the Emergency Department, outpatient surgery or procedures, outpatient testing or treatments at hospitals and in the infusion unit.
Starting May 26, one visitor will be allowed for admitted patients between the hours of noon and 6 p.m. We will also allow one visitor to attend outpatient clinic appointments with OHMG providers.
Visitors must follow guidelines and be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. For the most up-to-date policies, visit OwensboroHealth.org/Visit.
The Owensboro Health Healthpark Fitness Center will reopen on June 1. Services will restart in phases based on CDC guidelines, recommendations from our governor and Owensboro Health leadership. Everyone must adhere to physical distancing standards and overall capacity will be limited. As additional services reopen or guidelines change, we will keep you updated through the Healthpark Facebook page.
