Important COVID-19 News to Know


Family and Visitor Restrictions

We have revised our visitor policies to align with a new executive order from Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Currently, restricted/no visitors will be allowed at any Spectrum Health Lakeland locations (hospitals, outpatient locations and long-term care facilities). For special circumstances, one approved visitor will be allowed in situations involving pediatric and maternity patients, patients undergoing surgery, and end of life or critically ill patients.

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 FaceTime or other virtual calls. Visitors can also call 269.983.8300 and ask for a patient by name and be connected directly to their room phone number.

Event Cancellations

What we’ve learned from the spread of COVID-19 in communities across the nation and abroad is that social distancing and reducing opportunities for person-to-person contact are among the most effective means of prevention. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state officials, and others recommend not holding or participating in large events. As a result, we have decided to cancel or postpone many of our events through May 31, 2020. For a complete list, visit

"The health and safety of our patients and visitors is always our number one priority, even more so when public health situations like this arise. Our team members and medical staff are well-informed and have been trained on safe practices to prevent the spread of infection. Additional disease prevention measures are being instituted based on collaboration with the CDC, the Berrien County Health Department, and our own infectious disease experts.”
