Temporary visitor policy

To help ensure a safe care environment and limit possible exposure to coronavirus, we have modified our visitor policy temporarily. Please note that moms in labor and delivery may have their partner with them in the hospital.

  • All visitors and vendors will be screened for illness and asked specific questions.
  • Visitors should be prohibited in any area of the hospital except for:


  • 1 support person with a patient in labor, labor checks, prenatal ultrasounds, and post-delivery
  • 1 support person with a minor patient
  • 1 support person to assist patient with preop and post-op instructions
  • 1 support person to assist those with special needs (such as for a patient with cognitive impairment or disability who requires assistance to access care)
  • 2 support persons  allowed in patient room at one time for end of life situations

In clinics:

  • 1 support person with  patient who has need for direct assistance
  • Single parent with more than one child


From the time we greet you at North Country Hospital through the time you are settling back in at home, we will be partners in your well-being. We honor the trust you place in us by building a caring relationship, one that respects your unique needs and preferences. We will listen to you and answer your questions so you can share in the important decisions about your health.

Just like any family we will keep in touch, updating you on your condition and any related information during and after your stay. We take the time to discuss your concerns and care plans.

It’s been our tradition for 100 years to develop life-long relationships with our extended family members throughout our two-county area in the Northeast Kingdom. We are dedicated to bringing the latest medical expertise to our community, keeping your care close to home.
