McLaren Flint
Patient and Visitor Information

Restricted Visitation

As you know, the state of Michigan now has confirmed cases of COVID-19 and an official state of emergency has been declared by Governor Gretchen Whitmer. This act has heightened the concern regarding limiting the spread of the disease. McLaren Flint (MLF) has been working closely with the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) for several weeks to coordinate response efforts, and that work continues. One issue of utmost importance is the protection and health of hospital/healthcare workers, and vulnerable patients who are already in healthcare settings. To help keep our communities and our patients healthy, effective immediately, MLF will be enforcing the following family and visitor restrictions:


  • Effective immediately, all McLaren Health Care hospitals will limit inpatient visitation.
  • Each patient may have one healthy adult visitor to assist with the plan of care, personal care, discharge preparation, or communication.
  • Social visitation should be via telephone or Facetime.
  • Patients with scheduled outpatient procedures may bring one healthy adult visitor with them.
