The safety and security of our patients and visitors are of the utmost importance at Intermountain Medical Center. Please help us to ensure a safe and healing environment for patients by keeping noise to a minimum. Disruptive visitors may be asked to leave. 

Laboring mothers who are COVID-19 positive are allowed one visitor/partner to be present. The partner will be required to follow the following guidelines:

  • The partner will be screened at the Labor and Delivery entrance. If the partner has any symptoms they will not be allowed to accompany the laboring mother.
  • The partner will be required to wear a gown and mask the entire time and remain in the room the entire time, following social distancing guidelines with regard to caregivers.
  • Food will be provided to the patient and partner to prevent the need for the partner to leave the room.
  • If the laboring patient is transferred to a non-maternity floor, visitation policies pertaining to that floor will apply to the partner.
  • If the baby is transferred to the NICU, neither the mother nor partner will be allowed in that unit until quarantine is completed. 

This visiting policy may change with seasonal illnesses or as needed for other contagious diseases within the community.
