Evansville State Hospital
The health and safety of our patients, families, and staff members is our top priority. Our visitation guidelines balance preventing the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 with the needs of our patients and their loved ones.
We continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our community and may update the guidelines as needed to provide safe care to everyone.
Visitors must follow all safety precautions, even if vaccinated against COVID-19. Open visitation may fluctuate depending on whether or not the hospital has been placed on quarantine. Please contact the hospital to check status of open visitation.
