CHI Texas Division Adopts Highly Restrictive Visitation Policy
HOUSTON (March 24, 2020) – Effective at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, CHI Texas Division will have a new visitation policy in effect to protect our patients, visitors, employees and physicians. We are adopting a stricter visitation policy to align with Brazos and Harris County’s stay-at-home orders, as well as similar actions taken by numerous cities and counties in Texas.
The following changes will remain in effect until further notice.
Greeters will be screening at the designated entrances with a list of basic questions to help ensure that individuals who might spread the virus get the care they need while not exposing patients, staff, and other guests. Until the COVID pandemic has subsided:
During this time, we encourage visitors to consider alternative communication options, if available, such as phone, FaceTime, Skype, text, or email.
We understand this change in policy may be difficult for families, but it is imperative we take additional precautions to keep our patients and community safe during this global pandemic.
Below are facilities impacted by the modified visitor policy:
CHI St. Luke’s Health (serving the Greater Houston community)
CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial (serving the communities in Lufkin, Livingston, and San Augustine)
CHI St. Joseph Health (serving the Brazos Valley community)
