Visitor Policy During COVID-19
For the protection of patients and families, as well as our employees and physicians, effective immediately: No visitors are allowed at our hospitals with very few exceptions. We encourage patient visits by phone. Visitors for inpatient areas will be restricted except for the following:

  • One visitor at a time for healthy laboring mothers who are not sick

  • The designated support person will be required to stay for the entire hospitalization. If he/she leaves, they may not be allowed to return to the bedside.

  • For laboring mothers who have tested positive for COVID-19, or are showing symptoms, no visitors will be allowed.

  • Pregnant patients not in labor, requiring hospitalization will not be allowed to have visitors.

  • One parent or guardian at a time for pediatric inpatient

  • Visitation allowed for those patients in end-of-life care

Women and Children’s Services Outpatient Support During COVID-19
Patients may be screened prior to any scheduled appointment, such as pregnancy care or newborn care. Our Mother’s Resource Center is available to provide support via telephone and video conferencing with an appointment.

The birth of a child is one of life’s most exciting and memorable moments. It can also be a little overwhelming, especially if your pregnancy is high risk.
There’s a reason more than 60 percent of Fresno County’s babies – about 10,000 each year – are born at Community. Both Community Regional Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center have been recognized by the Joint Commission for excellence in perinatal care. Here, you and your family will find everything you need to welcome your new child with confidence.
Our doctors, nurses and specialists will be with you every step of the way.
