Visiting a Patient

COVID-19 Update:
Visitor Restrictions


To help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and for the safety of our patients and staff, we are currently restricting visitation. Patients are not permitted visitors at this time. Thank you for your cooperation and help in keeping our patients, staff and communities safe.

Exceptions to this policy may be made for neonatal ICU (NICU), pediatric, obstetric and psychiatric units as well as for extenuating circumstances, including those receiving end-of-life care and patients with disabilities who require a support person. We continue to monitor the situation. The visitation restrictions will be amended when appropriate.

Please call the Yale New Haven Health
call center with questions:
833-ASK-YNHH (833-275-9644)



Westerly Hospital does not have set visiting hours because we do not consider family and friends as visitors but rather as vital members of the healthcare team in our patient and family centered partnership. We try very hard to base visits around patient and family needs. We recognize that visits by family and friends are an important part of a patient’s recovery.

Friends or family members who are ill should not visit.

Please keep in mind that visits may be interrupted if the patient needs to leave the room for treatment, x-rays, or other tests.

If the patient is being treated in their room, visitors may be asked to step out at the patient’s request.
