COVID-19: Vaccines, boosters, testing, and visitor guidelines. Please use ER for emergencies only.

As you may be aware, many local businesses are facing staffing challenges – and local pharmacies are no exception. These developments are seriously impacting patients’ access to needed medications. Many community members are experiencing wait times for prescriptions of at least a week or more.

Action you can take to help avoid delays

You can reduce the risk of delays in obtaining prescriptions from your community pharmacy by requesting refills seven to 10 days before you run out of your medication. You also can discuss mail-order prescription program options with your insurance or healthcare provider. Please keep in mind that wait times for new prescriptions will be varied and unpredictable; please discuss options with your physician when they prescribe you a new medication.

Our No. 1 priority is the safety and well-being of our patients. As valued patients and community members, PeaceHealth is here to guide you through these challenges to ensure you have access to much-needed medications.

Families and Friends are Welcome

The presence of family and close friends can aid healing. Visitors are welcome at any hour on many units. However, some units do limit visitation to help patients get the rest they need. Please check with your nurse.

Most units prefer that you limit the number of visitors to two at any time. Please control the noise in your room. Remember that this is a tobacco-free campus; visitors wishing to smoke may check at the reception desk in the main lobby for information about offsite smoking locations.


Hospital entrances are open from 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors must check in with a security officer at the main lobby reception desk between 8 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. The officer will contact the nursing staff of the unit caring for you to verify the visit and issue an ID badge to your visitors. This check-in is vital to maintaining a secure hospital environment.


Family members and visitors are welcome to use the restroom inside the patient room. There are also public restrooms located throughout the hospital.
