Visitor Policy and Hours

Yuma Regional Medical Center is now observing "substantial" visitation levels. To continue to foster a safe and secure environment for our patients and our healthcare workers, daily inpatient visitation is available between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. In outpatient and ambulatory care settings, patients may have one companion per visit. Pediatric patients may bring both parents or guardians.

Current policies include:

  • Visitors must be 16 years or old unless they are a patient or the parent of a patient.
  • Patients may have one pre-designated companion for the duration of their stay.
  • All companions must remain masked and at the bedside during their visit.
  • Patients in COVID or isolation rooms may have one pre-designated companion for a visit of one hour per day.
  • For pediatric patients, both parents may be present.
  • Patients in Labor and Delivery/Mother-Baby may have two pre-designated visitors for the duration of their stay, one visitor at a time.
  • Patients in the Emergency Department may have one companion for the duration of their visit to the ED.
  • We will screen all visitors to the main YRMC campus, Cancer Center and clinics for symptoms associated with COVID-19, such as cough, fever and or shortness of breath.
  • Visitors will be given stickers to help manage visitation.

Of course, we want to accommodate patients with special circumstances, so we consider exceptions.

As a reminder, masks are required when entering any of YRMC's healthcare facilities. Therefore, we ask the public to please partner with us in keeping our patients and staff safe and ask that you bring your own mask when visiting the main hospital, the Cancer Center, YRMC's business facilities and any of our outpatient clinics.

Families, friends and the community are also encouraged to use technologies such as Zoom and Facetime to maintain video connections with patients and sustain their spirits. YRMC’s website also makes it easy to send Cheer Cards to patients to brighten their day. You can send a Cheer Card to a specific patient or an anonymous patient in need. To send a card to the latter, simply fill out “Any Patient” in the name field.

Restricting visitors is challenging for patients and their loved ones. YRMC is grateful for the community's remarkable patience and understanding as we continue to work together to protect the health and well-being of Yuma County. Creating a safe and secure environment for our patients and healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic must remain a top priority. If you have any questions regarding our visiting policies, please ask doctors, nurses or medical professionals caring for your loved one.
