Loved ones are welcome again.

It’s been a hard year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has faced a number of new challenges as we have worked to protect each other’s health and well-being. Perhaps one of the biggest of those challenges has been separation from others – whether that means forgoing in-person gatherings, grabbing coffee with a friend or visiting a loved one who is receiving care at the hospital.

As we come closer than ever to putting the pandemic behind us, we are pleased to announce that our visitation restrictions are relaxing, and loved ones are welcome again. We know that it has been difficult to be apart from family and friends who are receiving care, and we want to thank you for your patience and understanding while restrictions were in place to protect the health of our patients and staff.

We are so pleased to welcome our patients’ loved ones back to the hospital to visit. Our updated visitor policy can be found below.

It’s been a hard year. Let’s make the next one better…together.

Raleigh General Hospital is currently operating under a limited visitor policy for inpatients. These revisions come in response to the sustained decline in local COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in recent weeks.

The updated visitor policy is as follows:

  • Each patient may have two visitors PER DAY between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. Visitors will not be allowed to switch in and out with other people.

  • Labor & Delivery: One WELL support individual during labor and one WELL visitor. After delivery, one WELL support person for their entire hospital stay and in addition a second WELL visitor over the age of 16 is allowed from 8am - 8pm.

  • Patients in ER, those who are here for outpatient procedures and those under the age of 18 will be allowed one visitor at all times. This should also be one designated visitor, no switching in and out with others.

We will continue to screen everyone who enters our facilities for symptoms consistent with COVID-19, per CDC guidelines.

We will continue to enforce universal masking for everyone in our facility. Please bring a mask with you when you come to the hospital to visit.
