In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UPMC is temporarily restricting visitors at all hospitals and facilities. We hope these changes will ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Also, we are temporarily suspending most volunteer hours at our facilities.
Visitor and Volunteer Restrictions
All visitors interested in accessing the Womancare Birth Center (WCBC), Labor and Delivery Rooms (LDR), Mother–Baby and High Risk Pregnancy Units, or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) must obtain a visitor’s badge in the main lobby or the 0 Level tunnel entrance before entering those areas. Registration at the WCBC is limited to the patient's main support person on the arrival day. Visitors must show some form of photo ID.
In order for patients to receive optimal care, UPMC must maintain a therapeutic environment in its health care facilities. All patients and visitors are expected to refrain from behaviors that are disruptive, or pose a threat to the rights or safety of other patients, visitors, staff, or the facility. Any behavior that significantly impairs the ability of a facility to operate effectively, or deliver patient care, will not be tolerated. Visitors refusing to comply with visitation policies in the Mother-Baby, High-Risk Pregnancy, WCBC, and NICU units may be asked to leave.
