North Florida Regional Medical Center (NFRMC) is taking proactive measures to help ensure the health and safety of patients, caregivers, colleagues and our communities. Adjusted visitor access and screening are tools that we have implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two visitors per patient are permitted in the hospital. One visitor per patient is permitted in our emergency rooms. All visitors will be asked to provide their driver’s license or state issued ID so we can sign them in as a visitor in the hospital. To help supplement visitor needs, please consider programs like FaceTime, Skype, etc. Visitation hours are 5:30 a.m.–8:00 p.m., Monday-Sunday.

Please use the following entrances:

  • Main Entrance– for surgical patients, visitors with no symptoms and outpatient testing.
  • Women's Center Entrance– for maternity patients and Women's Center Medical Office patients.
  • Emergency Room– for medical emergencies.

Visitors must be screened and wear a mask at all times while in the hospital. While in NFRMC, all are asked to help us maintain social distancing standards and should remain in the patient's room as much as possible during their entire visit. Any potential visitors who show signs of respiratory illness or have a fever will not be permitted in the hospital, and will be invited to go to the Emergency Room for treatment- which is open 24/7.

We appreciate the cooperation of our visitors, patients, colleagues and providers to support our infection control efforts during the COVID–19 pandemic. We will continue to monitor our local circumstances as they evolve and the CDC updates its guidance and will provide updates as needed.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient’s treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
