Emergency Room and OBED

The NO Visitor policy remains in effect, however, exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis, when warranted.


All patients are being directed to a single point of entry to the Medical Center – Hospital Entrance/Patient Registration (1-North), unless instructed otherwise. Signage has been posted at the locked entrances. Patients and visitors will be screened upon entry.

Flu Season Policy

It's flu season. Flu season runs from Nov. 15, 2023 through March 31, 2024 and during this time, Saint Agnes is taking extra precautions to protect our patients, visitors and staff from exposure to respiratory and flu illness. This includes implementation of our Flu Season Visitor Policy, outlined below:

  • Visitors are limited.
  • Anyone with cold or flu symptoms may not visit patients.

Nonsmoking Policy

Saint Agnes Medical Center is a tobacco-free organization. Smoking or tobacco use of any kind – including electronic cigarettes – is strictly prohibited inside, outside or anywhere around our facility (i.e. walkways surrounding the campus grounds). Patients who have smoking material or tobacco products in their possession upon admission will be asked to send them home with a loved one. If this is not feasible, our staff will gladly safeguard these items until discharge.
