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

Patients and Visitors coming to the main CMC campus for non-emergency related care must enter through one of the following entrances:

  • North Tower.  This entrance is open from 6am to 5pm. 
  • Medical Arts Building.  This entrance is open 7am to 4:45pm.

Visitation Policy

Effective Tuesday, July 28, 2021:

  • Conway Medical Center will only allow one visitor at a time per patient.  Additional visitors must wait outside of the facility until they are able to switch with another family member.  Exceptions: Laboring mothers, pediatric patients, end-of-life situations.
  • No visitors are allowed in the Emergency Department except for pediatric and elderly patients.
  • No visitors are allowed for COVID-19 patients in isolation, except under end-of-life or other special circumstances.

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.
