Guidelines for Patients and Visitors
Coming to the hospital can be an overwhelming experience. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the following patient and visitor information.
Effective January 13, 2022, in alignment with other local and regional hospitals, all patients who are admitted to Woodstock Hospital will be required to have a COVID-19 test completed, even if the patient does not show typical symptoms related to the virus. This process will provide additional patient safety measures by ensuring early detection of patients who may not be exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Diagnosis of COVID-19 and placement of the necessary precautions will assist in the prevention of COVID-19 transmissions to other patients and staff.
