Visitor Policy Changes

In order to provide a safe, healing environment for patients and team members, AdventHealth Palm Coast is modifying its visitor policies.

  • All visitors to the hospital should enter through the main entrance (by the cafeteria).
  • All patients arriving for outpatient services and physician offices should enter through the Outpatient Services entrance (facing State Road 100).
  • All patients arriving for Same Day Surgery should enter through the Same Day Surgery entrance.
  • Patients seeking emergency medical treatment should still enter through the ER.
  • All other exterior doors will be locked and only available to exit our facility.
  • Everyone visiting AdventHealth facilities, including outside vendors, will be screened each time they enter the facility.
    • If any of the screening identifies a symptom of concern or identifies any of the risk factors of COVID-19, the visitor will not be allowed to enter the hospital until testing would confirm they do not have COVID-19.
  • Visitors who are sick are asked not to visit patients or enter the facility unless they are seeking personal medical care.
  • Children under the age of 12 are prohibited from visiting a facility unless they are seeking care. We continue to provide pediatric care; this policy applies to visitors only.
  • People who have COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 are not allowed to enter the facility as a visitor. 
  • All visitors must wash their hands or use alcohol hand sanitizer before and after leaving patient rooms and the facility.

Visiting Hours: 8AM-8PM
