Current Visitor Policy
As of December 31, all Middlesex Health locations, including the hospital, outpatient locations and ambulatory settings, are closed to visitors — with a few exceptions. Learn More
The following guidelines have been put in place to best protect our families and our staff while still ensuring a safe and positive birth experience. In rare cases, exceptions may be considered.
Pregnancy and Birth Center patients can name a primary support person, and they may visit 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If they arrive outside of visiting hours, they should report to the Emergency Department main entrance and check-in with the Protective Services Officer in that area.
The primary support person may only leave a patient's room to pick up food delivered to the lobby or get food from the cafeteria. Pregnancy and Birth Center patients may only be visited by their primary support person throughout their stay. Additional visitors are not permitted without prior approval.
For Cesarean Births, the primary support person can be present with you in the operating room.
This support person must be symptom free. This person will be screened twice daily with a temperature check. They will also be asked if they have had primary symptoms of COVID-19, such as cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fever or chills, new muscle pain, new headaches, new loss of taste or smell, and if they have been around anyone ill in the past two weeks.
This support person must be the same person throughout mom's entire hospital stay.
