New Visitor Restrictions

Spectrum Health Lakeland has revised their visitor policies to help keep patients, family members and team members safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, to comply with State of Michigan orders, and to preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care workers who are at risk.

Beginning Monday, March 16, restricted/no visitors will be allowed at any locations (hospitals, outpatient locations and long-term care facilities) for Spectrum Health Lakeland. For special circumstances, one approved visitor will be allowed in situations involving patients undergoing surgery and pediatric, maternity, end of life or critically ill patients.

This is a rapidly evolving situation, and information is subject to change. We appreciate the public’s cooperation and understand this is an extremely difficult time for everyone.

Staying in Touch with Loved Ones

Spectrum Health Lakeland understands how important it is to stay in touch with loved ones during this time. To stay in contact and up to date on a patient’s medical situation we are recommending social apps like FaceTime, Facebook messenger, Skype, or other virtual calls. Guest Wi-Fi network is available for patients to alleviate the use of personal data plans. Visitors can also call 269.983.8300 and ask for a patient by name and be connected directly to their room phone number.
