Protecting Patients and Providers

Current Visitor Restrictions at ThedaCare Locations

At ThedaCare, the first priority is protecting the health and wellness of patients, team members and visitors.


Due to the rising levels of coronavirus COVID-19 nationwide and in our immediate region, ThedaCare is implementing additional visitor restrictions – until further notice.

All ThedaCare facilities will be screening and requiring masks for approved visitors, contractors, and vendors at our entrances. Masks must be worn throughout the entire visit at ThedaCare.

  • NO visitors for patients (COVID & non-COVID) except limited, approved, pre-arranged visitation for end of life.
  • One parent/guardian allowed to accompany:
    1. Minor
    2. Patient with medical need (intellectual and/or developmental disability or cognitive impairment).
  • Patients presenting for outpatient care in a hospital or clinic setting are allowed to enter with their minor children, if no alternative. Children must be masked at all times.
  • No visitors for any other patients.

  • Residents of The Heritage may not visit residents in other areas of the campus.
