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:

  • Interpreters
  • Medical decision-makers
  • 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.”
