Patient Information and Visiting Hours at Morrow County Hospital

Effective April 20, 2022, Morrow County Hospital has established updated visitation guidelines for all inpatient, outpatient, ED, Urgent Care and Surgical stays.

We’re grateful to see lower COVID-19 transmission rates. Despite the decrease, we continue to operate under the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance for healthcare settings. Updated visitor policies were developed with this guidance in mind, and in collaboration with the central Ohio hospital systems and Ohio Hospital Association. Updates support a patient family centered care model while the patient is at Morrow County Hospital.
