o Patients coming for induction of labor or scheduled C-section may be accompanied by 1 support person who will remain through the hospitalization.
o All other patients follow visiting restrictions of the main hospital.

Flower Delivery PolicyIn order to reduce the risk of exposure, and in an effort to minimize the amount of people entering our facilities, Virtua facilities are no longer accepting deliveries of flowers, gift baskets, or the like. We ask that you please send these thoughtful deliveries directly to the homes of your loved ones during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your understanding.
Temporary Postponement of Community Classes and Events
The health and well-being of this community is our top priority, so we are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by temporarily cancelling classes and events at our facilities through April 30. Thank you for understanding.
