Care Partner Policy (Updated February 27, 2023)

A Care Partner may be a relative, partner, friend or anyone (over age 18) that the patient chooses to have at their side during care. A Care Partner takes an active role in caring for their loved one in the hospital.

We encourage you to use digital resources connect with your loved ones in the hospital and to assist them in their care. Below are free resources that are available to use.

Visitor Management System

Piedmont Columbus Regional has implemented a new visitor management system for its Midtown and Northside campuses.

Visitors (care partners) MUST HAVE A VALID ID (driver’s license or another form of government ID) to enter the facility. If the care partner does not have a valid ID, they will not be allowed inside the facility. Staff will give the care partner a badge sticker that must be worn inside the facility at all times. The ink on the badge will disappear in 12 hours. Once this happens, the care partner needs to either leave the facility or go back to the entrance they came in at be re-screened and get a new badge sticker.

Visiting Hours and Parking

Care partners are an important part of patient care and family and friends are encouraged to visit. Patient comfort and safety may require limited or suspended visitation at certain times.

Parking is available in guest parking areas directly across from the main entrance of the hospital on Center Street and at the 18th Street entrance.
