Beebe Medical Center Adheres to Temporary Visitor Policy
Beebe Medical Center has joined hospitals throughout Delaware in establishing a temporary visitor policy in which children under the age of 16 are not allowed to visit patients during the present flu epidemic.
The decision was made to protect the health and safety of children and patients. The present H1N1 flu is proving to spread easily and quickly. Beebe Medical Center, a community hospital known for its friendly atmosphere and welcoming spirit, will lift this policy as soon as the concerns about the spread of H1N1 and seasonal flu are over.
In the meantime, children visitors under the age of 16 cannot go upstairs to the patient areas, nor can they be left alone in the waiting areas downstairs.
Please understand and join us in our effort to stop the spread of the flu, to protect those who are ill, and to protect those who are not.
Beebe Medical Center is a not-for-profit community medical center with a charitable mission to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health with the people residing, working, or visiting in the communities we serve.
