RICHMOND, Va. -- VCU Health has updated its visitor policy and is extending visiting hours for hospitalized non-COVID-19 patients at VCU Medical Center, effective immediately.

Under the new policy, adult and pediatric hospitalized patients can receive two adult visitors. One adult visitor may stay the night for pediatric patients.

Additionally, Labor and Delivery and the Mother/Infant Unit now allows two adult visitors, plus a doula.

Inpatient visitation hours have been extended to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Previously, VCU Health was operating under limited visitation and non-COVID-19 hospital patients could only have one adult visitor per day.

All visitors are required to wear a face mask and visitor badge at all times. If a visitor does not have a face mask, VCU Health will provide one.
