Visitation Policy

If you have flu-like or pneumonia-like symptoms such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or chills, please do not visit patients in the hospital. If you need treatment, please contact your primary care provider.

At Conway Medical Center the health and safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority.  It is a big reason we have received 4 “A’s” in a row from Leapfrog for Hospital Safety.  Whether it’s the middle of a pandemic or normal times, you can trust our team to keep you and your family safe. 

As Conway Medical Center’s leadership team continues to assess the COVID-19 crisis and the impacts on our hospital, staff, and patients, CMC has revised our visitor policy. 

Visitation Policy

CMC’s temporary COVID-19 Visitation Policy will be as follows until further notice:

  • Visiting Hours will be 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
  • No visitors under the age of 16 except in end-of-life situations.
  • Visitors will be screened at entry (screening questions will be posted at checkpoint and screening staff will confirm visitor compliance).  Everyone entering any CMC building must wear a mask (no gaiters or vented masks).
  • Entrances for Patients/Visitors:
    • The main hospital entrance is open and is the preferred entrance for all visitors.
    • North Tower Entrance – Rheumatology, Wound Care, and Endoscopy patients  (6:00 AM to 5:00 PM)
    • Medical Arts Building – open from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM with screening

Masking requirements remain in effect.

Universal masking of all visitors, patients, and staff will remain in effect at CMC and all clinics.  The CDC indicates that masks are required in healthcare settings.  The CDC has emphasized that new masking recommendations for people fully vaccinated for COVID-19 do not apply to healthcare settings.  CMC will follow this guidance and enforce masking requirements for the protection of our patients, visitors, and staff.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, CMC will adapt policies as needed and appropriate.
