Visitor Policy and Hours

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in our community and admissions to the hospital, YRMC returned  to "substantial" visitation levels on Monday, August 30. This is our highest level of visitor restrictions. To continue to foster a safe and secure environment for our patients and our healthcare workers, visitors will no longer be permitted at YRMC locations.

Exceptions may be made in specific situations, such as patients who are in serious condition or nearing their end of life, patients in ICU/MOSU, patients in Labor and Delivery, patients in the Emergency Department and parents of patients who are 21 and younger. Under these special circumstances, only one companion will be allowed in at a time. These guidelines apply to YRMC's main campus, Cancer Center, clinics and facilities.

To help minimize the impact of visitor restrictions on our patients, YRMC is working with families to encourage the use of video chat services such as Zoom or Skype. A limited number of electronic tablets are available for virtual visitation. We also remind families to help patients remember to bring their smartphones or tablets — along with necessary chargers.

Families, friends and the community are also encouraged to use YRMC’s website to send Cheer Cards to patients to brighten their day. You can send a Cheer Card to a specific patient or to 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.
