Patient And Visitor Information

Visitor Policy Update (04/05/21)

To protect the health of our patients, their families and our employees, McLaren Lapeer Region has modified its Visitor Policy. Temporary visitor restrictions and procedures have been implemented due to COVID-19.

Visiting hours are between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

We understand the importance of patients having access to their loved ones while receiving care at our hospital. At this time, we ask patients and their families to consider communication through phone and video chat as their primary means of communication. If an in-person visit is needed, the following will apply:

All visitors entering McLaren Lapeer Region will be screened for COVID-19 and flu symptoms in accordance with the CDC recommendations.

All visitors are required to bring and wear their own face mask for the duration of their visit at McLaren Lapeer Region and associated clinical locations. If you do not have a face mask, one will be provided for you.

No visitors under the age of 18 are permitted unless they are parents of a pediatric patient.
