COVID-19 Visitor Response Plan
For the health and safety of our patients and employees, all inpatient and resident visitation has been suspended until further notice across Bassett Healthcare Network hospitals and long-term care facilities. Bassett Healthcare Network is committed to providing a safe and comfortable care environment for patients, their families, and our staff. Our care specialists are working collaboratively with public health agencies and closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) developments.
Please Note: There have been changes made to our visitor response plan. Additional guidance is now available in the below document regarding extenuating circumstances, such as end-of-life care.
