OSF HealthCare Limiting and Screening Visitors

Mar 31, 2020 - To protect patients, family members and staff during this time of increased seasonal flu activity and the spread of COVID-19, we are asking the public not to visit hospitalized patients.

To protect the health and safety of patients, visitors, and Mission Partners (employees), OSF HealthCare facilities in Kewanee and Monmouth will implement a strict no visitor policy effective April 1, 2020, with a few exceptions:

  • One visitor will be allowed for pediatric patients
  • Exceptions will be made for end-of-life situations

All people entering the hospital will be screened for signs of respiratory illness.

Walk-in appointments (non-scheduled) after 4 p.m. on weekdays or after 11 a.m. on Saturdays at OSF Saint Luke Rural Health Clinic will not be available, so please plan accordingly.

“Quality and safety is our number one priority,” says Jackie Kernan, president of OSF Holy Family and OSF Saint Luke. “These safety measures are aligned with our Mission and CDC recommendations, and we thank our communities for their understanding.”

If you have questions about coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the OSF HealthCare website.
