Visitor Guidelines

CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System Updates Visitor Guidelines

In accordance with CDC, State and Federal Health Department guidelines, hospitals within CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System will be limiting the use of all waiting areas within our facilities to patients and one essential caregiver only, as well as implementing a social distancing procedure for each area. Additionally, due to the updated guidelines regarding universal masking, we are now requiring ALL individuals visiting our facilities to wear a mask, including patients, visitors, Associates and physicians.

Patients scheduled for appointments or procedures will be contacted in advance of arrival so that they may make arrangements to follow the guidelines. All Associates, physicians, patients and visitors will be screened prior to entering our facility. Personnel will be stationed at each screening point within the facilities to educate patients and visitors who are arriving at the hospital.

CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System wants to assure the people of these communities who trust in us for their health care that we are prepared and stand ready to care for our community. Because our goal is to ensure our hospital continues to be a safe place to receive care, we are following CDC guidelines and implementing new visitation restrictions. The goal of these updated visitor procedures is to limit the risk of exposure to our patients, visitors, Associates, and physicians.
