Limited visitation to resume at PRMC, Nanticoke Memorial


DELMARVA – Starting today, August 17th, the restrictions on visitation will change at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Officials say one visitor per patient will be allowed during a patient’s stay, with the exception of patients suspected of having or confirmed to have COVID-19. Visitation hours will be from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on weekends.

Only one single visitor will be approved to visit during the patient’s stay, not just one at a time. We’re told this will help keep the risk of infection lower as COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community. All visitors are required to wear a face covering or mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times. Those who are unable to wear a face covering should not visit.

At PRMC, visitors should enter through the Hanna Outpatient Entrance, located near Visitor Parking Garage B off of Vine Street. At Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, visitors should use the main entrance.

All visitors must show identification and will be verified as the patient’s appointed visitor. On entry, visitors will be screened for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms.
