Visitor Information

With the rising number of COVID-19 positive cases in Florida, visitation is suspended for patients receiving inpatient, surgical and emergency care, effective Friday, July 3 and until further notice. Broward Health remains committed to ensuring the safety of our caregivers and patients, and our healthcare system stands ready and prepared to care for our community.

We will continue offering surgical and medical procedures based on medical need while taking all measures to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Maternity, pediatric and end of life visitation remain:
  • Postpartum maternity patients are allowed one father/support person to stay the entire stay. We discourage the father/support person leaving and coming back to the hospital. No other visitors in labor or postpartum.
  • Pediatric and NICU patients are allowed one parent or guardian at a time per 12-hour shift (7 a.m. - 7 p.m., 7 p.m. - 7 a.m.).
  • Patients at the end of life will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
 
We understand the importance of patients having contact with their loved ones and this role in the healing process. Please encourage patients to utilize technology to facilitate virtual visits via FaceTime, Skype or WhatsApp video calls. iPads are also available.
 
We also offer free virtual greeting cards, which are printed and delivered to patients. Please encourage loved ones to send free virtual greeting cards
