Indiana is experiencing a significant increase in influenza-like illnesses (commonly known as flu). In an effort to protect our patients, families, visitors and associates, as well as limit the spread of the virus, St. Vincent is implementing a temporary Visitor Restriction Policy to be in place by January 8, 2018. This temporary restriction at all ministries will assist us in limiting the spread of influenza and ensuring that we are best equipped to provide exceptional care to our patients.

Visitation at St. Vincent will be restricted based on the following criteria:

No visitors with influenza-like illness, fever or cough
No visitors under age 18
No visitors beyond immediate family, partner or significant other
The temporary restriction is in effect at the following St. Vincent ministries:

Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent – Two designated caregivers only
St. Vincent Anderson 
St. Vincent Carmel
St. Vincent Clay
St. Vincent Dunn
St. Vincent Evansville
St. Vincent Fishers
St. Vincent Heart Center
St. Vincent Indianapolis
St. Vincent Jennings
St. Vincent Kokomo
St. Vincent Mercy
St. Vincent Neighborhood Hospital
St. Vincent Randolph
St. Vincent Salem
St. Vincent Seton Specialty Hospital
St. Vincent Stress Center
St. Vincent Warrick
St. Vincent Williamsport
St. Vincent Women’s  – Parents and grandparents only in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Continuing Care Nursery (CCN) and Neonatal Continuing Care (NCC)
We recognize the hardship that these restrictions can place on our community members visiting loved ones in our ministries, and that flu cases at every site aren’t spiking simultaneously – but this season’s strain of flu has already resulted in significant harm in Indiana. We will continue to monitor flu activity with local and state agencies and assess when restrictions can be lifted.

Thank you for maintaining a healthy environment for our patients, families and fellow associates.
