East Georgia Regional Medical Center is currently limiting visitation to 1 visitor per patient. All visitors must be over the age of 16.
By entering the facility as a visitor, you must attest that:

The number of entrances to the hospital remains limited. All visitors for patients should enter the hospital through the Outpatient Entrance Monday – Friday between 5:30am – 7:00pm, and on Saturday and Sunday between 9:00am – 3:00pm. After hours, visitors must enter through the Emergency Department entrance. Those visiting patients in the Women’s Pavilion may enter at that entrance.
Patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or who are under investigation may not have visitors. We do encourage you to use electronic communication for “virtual visitation” such as FaceTime and Skype.
Visitors without masks will not be allowed to enter the facility. Visitors will be required to wear a mask or face covering (over your nose and mouth) at all times and will not be allowed to remain in the hospital without one.
Proper infection prevention practices, including hand washing/sanitizing and social distancing, must be followed by all visitors.
