Meeker Memorial is committed to protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to implement visitor restrictions at our hospital and clinics to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 to our patients and staff.

Visitor Information

Meeker Memorial Hospital welcomes visitors and understands that visiting friends and loved ones play an important role in speeding your recovery. We know how eagerly you look forward to such visits, and we ask that your visitors observe all visiting hours and guidelines.

Visiting Hours

As a result of COVID-19, Meeker Memorial has restricted access to facility to patients only. We know this creates an inconvenience for many of you. Some exceptions can and will be made to this policy. Please discuss your situation with a member of our staff.

General visiting hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Birthing Center: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. & 3:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Fathers, siblings, and grandparents may visit at any time (patient and nurse discretion may apply)

Critical Care Unit: In fifteen-minute intervals every hour, around the clock (at nurse’s discretion)

Visiting Guidelines & Restrictions

We recommend only two visitors at a time per visit. People with colds, sore throats, flu or other contagious illnesses should not visit. Keep visits brief; this allows for the rest patients need during recovery. In consideration of other patients, please keep conversations as quiet as possible.

From time to time (i.e. flu season), Meeker Memorial Hospital might impose visitor restrictions. Furthermore, in order to ensure patient safety, restrictions and access to certain patient care areas may be enforced. 

If you are a patient, please visit with your nurse if you would like to limit your number of visitors or allow only certain visitors access to your room.

Pediatric Care & Visitors

We encourage parents of patients ages 12 years and younger to stay with their children as much as possible. We can provide guest services if an overnight stay is necessary for a parent.

Additional Recommendations

If you have upper respiratory symptoms, please refrain from visiting the hospital. If you do visit, please cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or wear a mask to protect others. Masks are available in the Main Lobby or at the nurse’s desk on the third floor. Thank you for doing what you can to protect yourself and others.
