Coronavirus Restrictions UPDATE-March 16, 2020

As of Monday, March 16, 2020, SCCH officials are severely restricting visitors to the hospital campus in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak.

Beginning Monday morning at 6:00 AM, NO VISITORS will be permitted at the hospital. One visitor may be considered in the following areas:

  • OB
  • Pediatrics
  • ER
  • Outpatient Rehab
  • Outpatient Surgery

In end of life situations, two visitors will be allowed per patient.  A patient who is directly admitted to the hospital may have one visitor present during the admission process only.

All visitors must pass a health screen each day.

State and local health officials stressed that anyone with symptoms should call their doctor or hospital before seeking care. Advanced notice allows our providers to prepare for the patient’s arrival, reducing exposure to staff and other patients.

Sullivan County Community Hospital: 812-268-4311.

Anyone with questions or concerns should call the Indiana State Department of Health coronavirus hotline at 317-233-7125. For more information, go to CDC website and the ISDH website
