SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Visitor restrictions will be loosened at Mercy Hospitals, allowing one visitor per patient per day.
This will go into effect on June 12 at 6 a.m. at these locations:
- Mercy Hospital Springfield
- Mercy Hospital Aurora
- Mercy Hospital Cassville
- Mercy Hospital Lebanon
- Mercy St. Francis Hospital
Visitors will be required to have their temprature taken and wear a mask throughout their time inside the hospitals.
Patients won’t be able to have visitors at appointments except for the following reasons:

- Those necessary to ensure patients receive care
- Young children can accompany parents/guardians if child care is not available
“Our patients and their loved ones have been so understanding of our recent policies, which were designed to limit the risk of COVID-19 infections among our patients and caregivers,” said Craig McCoy, president of Mercy Springfield Communities. “Mercy recognizes how important family and friends are to a patient’s recovery, and we’re so pleased to be able to welcome them back into our hospitals.”
