Patients and Visitors

A new normal

At Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, our goal is to provide our patients with the best medical care possible. Our team works together to evaluate and treat your children in a nurturing and compassionate environment.

During this respiratory infection season, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital is taking necessary precautions to keep all patients, families and visitors at our hospitals safe. For this reason, we are making a few adjustments to our visiting policy, limiting our access points and implementing screenings. Learn more about how we are providing care safely during your visit.

Important Update: Pre-procedural Testing

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking necessary precautions to keep all patients, families and visitors at our hospitals safe.
 
For your safety we are requiring all patients having a procedure under anesthesia or sedation to have a COVID-19 test 48-72 hours prior to your hospital visit.

Find out more about this requirement and where to have the test.
