Information for Visitors
Effective March 24, 2020, visitation restrictions at Coshocton Regional
Medical Center have been changed to
no visitors allowed. Exceptions will be made for patients at the end of life and disabled patients.
Additional Precautions being taken at our hospital location and all clinic locations include:
- All patients will be screened for symptoms upon entry of the facility and
our clinic locations. We are following CDC guidelines and screening protocols
while maintaining our standard infection control best practices.
- All elective surgeries will be postponed following an order from the Ohio
Department of Health. By postponing surgical procedures, hospitals can
reduce the risk to patients and providers, conserve critically short supplies
of personal protection equipment and preserve inpatient beds and equipment.
Critical surgeries, such as those saving a patient’s life, preserving
the function of organs or limbs, reducing metastasis or progression of
a disease or reducing severe symptoms will continue.

At Coshocton Regional Medical Center, we recognize the important role visits
play in a patient’s healing process. A smile and quiet time spent
with family and friends can go a long way in calming fears and aiding
recovery. That’s why we welcome visitors, depending upon the condition
and preference of our patient.
There may be times when visitation is restricted, such as when a patient
is in the intensive care unit or is in the emergency room. In these cases,
the number and age of visitors may be restricted to protect the patient
and allow for appropriate care, since the care, privacy and comfort of
our patients is our primary concern.
Here is information we hope will be of help to you as you plan your visit.
Daily – 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
