June 9, 2021

Mercy has adopted leading industry protocols to ensure the highest quality and safety standards to keep our patients, co-workers and visitors as safe as possible while on our campuses. Mercy is restricting visitors at its hospital campuses and clinics in Ardmore and providing guidelines for mask requirements on campus.

Please review the following guidelines, effective June 9, 2021:

Mercy Clinic Visitor Restrictions

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all Mercy Clinic locations across the ministry are limiting visitors to one per patient. Mercy is temporarily requesting visitor limits like this for the safety of our patients, our care teams and our communities. We will continue to welcome those serving as interpreters or acting as health care power of attorney for patients, as they are not "visitors." Young children may also accompany parents/guardians if child care is not available.
