Visitor Restrictions

Updated Visitor Restrictions

The situation surrounding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) continues to evolve and changes are occurring rapidly. The CDC recommends aggressive visitor restrictions. St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital are restricting visitation. This restriction takes effect Monday, March 23, 2020. Please know, the health and safety of our patients, their families, and team members remains a top priority for our organization.

As of Monday, March 23, 2020 at 8:00am, we will no longer be accepting visitors into the facility until further notice. We appreciate your understanding

At this time, alternative means of communication between families and patients such as virtual visitation, Skype, FaceTime, etc. are encouraged.

We take these proactive precautions to protect our patients, team members, and the communities we serve. We are sensitive to the separation this restriction causes our patients and their loved ones, but we believe this measure of protection is essential at this time to keep people safe.


Due to CDC Guidelines and out of an abundance of caution for both patients and staff, effective Monday, 3/23/20 we will temporarily close all outpatient therapies including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapies at St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.
We will contact our patients when we are able to resume outpatient therapy services.
Patients are welcome to contact their referring physician or the outpatient therapy clinic with any questions or concerns.
