Important Information for White Plains Hospital Visitors
Cases of COVID-19 are once again increasing state-wide and here in Westchester County. As such, we are taking additional precautions at White Plains Hospital to keep our staff and patients safe. Effective Tuesday, December 21, we have changed our visitation policy to allow one visitor per day per patient.
When visiting, we ask that all visitors please be masked at all times while in the Hospital and remain in the patient’s room while you are here. At this time they will not be allowed to wait in the lobby or Cafeteria. Visitors are allowed between the hours of 12pm-6pm daily.
Exceptions may apply for parents visiting the NICU, pediatric patients, patients in palliative care, and those with special needs, being discharged, or needing a support person.
Visitors must be over 18 years of age. ID will be required at check-in. Upon entering the Lobby, visitors will be screened for temperature and asked a series of questions to rule out exposure. These questions include travel history as per the Governor's latest guidelines. Please check the New York State Travel Advisory website prior to traveling to make sure you are up to date on the latest testing and quarantine requirements.
Visitors who do not adhere to the above guidelines will be asked to leave.
Please note the Hospital policies for Maternity, Labor & Delivery, and the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
In addition, for patients coming to our physician offices and for outpatient testing & procedures, we ask that you please come alone to your appointment unless you require assistance or are a parent accompanying a minor.
