Day Kimball Hospital (DKH) is implementing further measures to reduce the number of publicly accessible hospital entrance points to enhance the safety and security of our patient care environment during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Effective Tuesday, March 31, at 7:00 a.m., the Main Entrance at Day Kimball Hospital (Entrance A at the back of the hospital) will be accessible only to DKH employees with badges until further notice.
All other patients and visitors coming to the hospital will need to enter through the Emergency Department to access the hospital.
The Main Entrance of the hospital will remain open for patients to access a limited number of outpatient services, including:
“The decision to reduce patient entrances is part of a continued effort to protect patients, visitors, employees, medical staff, and the community from COVID-19 exposure and to limit potential spread of the illness,” said Joseph Adiletta, Interim President, Day Kimball Healthcare. “We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause and we thank the community for their continued understanding and cooperation.”
Day Kimball Healthcare’s team of experts are dedicated to the health and safety of the community. DKH will continue to monitor hospital operations, assess the needs of the community, and take necessary COVID-19 precautions as the situation develops and new information emerges.
The Hospital closed its entrance at the front of the hospital to visitors earlier this month. For more information and guidelines about visiting Day Kimball Healthcare visit daykimball.org/visitors.
