Monongahela Valley Hospital Updates Visitation

The number of COVID-19 cases in Washington County has steadily decreased and the number of people vaccinated has increased, in turn Monongahela Valley Hospital is pleased to announce it has updated visiting hours to reflect these positive changes. Beginning Tuesday, June 1, the revised policy allows visitation from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for those in 3-PCU, 4-PCU and on Floors 5, 6 and 7.

For each of the units/floors, patients may name two visitors and only those two people may visit during their entire stay. Only one of the designated visitors will be permitted in a patient room at a time. Visitors are required to wear a mask and they must be 18 years of age or older. All visitors must be screened before each visit.

"We know the importance of interacting with loved ones contributes to the health and well-being of our patients," said Louis J. Panza Jr., MVH's president and CEO. "Expanding visiting hours simply provides more convenience for families to visit loved ones staying with us."

Visitation will remain the same for all other units.
