Ready When You Are

At Kettering Health Network we believe that every birth is special and our staff is here to support you at each step in your unique experience. When you're planning to grow your family you can work with your provider team to find out more about conception, receive prenatal care, and develop a birthing plan unique to your needs.

You can trust in the knowledge, expertise, and medical training of our staff. All of our OB/GYN physicians are board certified and our neonatal nurses spend 20,000 hours in specialized training. Take comfort in our comprehensive Labor & Delivery Suites, designed with you in mind and offering amenities for the whole family.

Effective Tuesday, March 16 at 8 a.m., current patients and patients coming in for an emergency department visit, hospitalization, or outpatient procedure will be permitted two visitors at a time.

Any additional visitors must wait outside the facility until their turn to visit the patient.

To maintain a safe and socially distanced environment, all inpatient rooms will be limited to two visitors at a time, even for rooms with more than one patient.

Visitation for office visits varies by provider. Please check the visitor policy with your individual provider prior to your office visit.

No visitation will be permitted for outpatient physical, occupational, or speech therapy.

No visitation will be permitted for outpatient testing, including noninvasive radiology testing, routine X-rays, and lab studies. Patients who require assistance due to mobility, reorienting/confusion, interpretation, court orders, or healthcare decision-making may have one assistance person.

No visitation will be allowed by anyone under the age of 18 unless they are the parent or legal guardian of a pediatric patient.

The following exceptions apply to our visitor policy:
  • End-of-life care situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
  • No NICU visitation for mothers and partners with COVID-19 while they are still able to transmit the virus.
  • No COVID-19 positive or symptomatic individuals will be permitted to visit unless it has been greater than 10 days since the test or onset of symptoms.
  • No individuals awaiting COVID-19 test results will be permitted to visit patients.

Inpatient visitation for patients suspected to have or diagnosed with COVID-19
Those who are suspected to have COVID-19 or inpatients diagnosed with COVID-19 may identify one visitor to support them for the duration of their hospital stay. They may also have a representative designate a visitor on their behalf.

Visitation is limited to 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Visits must be scheduled and coordinated with hospital leadership.

What to expect as a visitor of a patient suspected to have or diagnosed with COVID-19:
  • You must follow all visitor instructions.
  • You must pass the facility's entry screening process.
  • Check in at the nurses' station on the unit and notify staff of arrival prior to entering patient room.
  • Before entering the patient room, you will be required to put on personal protective equipment (PPE) provided by the nursing team, which includes a gown, gloves, and isolation mask. A face shield or goggles should also be worn.
  • When entering an isolation room or area, a member of the hospital care team will help you with PPE.
  • When exiting an isolation room or area, a member of the hospital care team will help you safely remove your PPE.
  • At the end of the visit, you will leave the hospital directly.
