No Visitors Policy at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton due to COVID-19

As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the public, patients, staff and physicians from the potential transmission of the COVID-19 virus, effective March 20, 2020, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton is implementing a no visitor policy.

No Visitor Policy

We are currently closed to visitors with limited exceptions, as follows:

  • Compassionate grounds for palliative patients
  • Partners (or a family member or friend) of women in labour and parents of babies in our Special Care Nursery
  • Other special needs as determined by the care team

While this new policy is in place, we encourage all families to designate a point person who will connect with the patient’s care team for consistent communication.
