COVID-19 Information

In response to the increased community spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) is taking additional precautionary measures to protect public health and keep our patients, visitors, Associates and community safe.

Effective March 20:

Only one healthy designated support person is permitted to be with patients in the labor, delivery, postpartum and recovery units.

Effective April 7:

All support persons must wear a mask while they are in the hospital. If they do not have a mask, one will be provided to them.

Effective April 16:

If an expectant mother is being evaluated in the Labor Triage area, the support person must stay in their car. If the patient is admitted to the labor unit, the support person will be called by a nurse to enter the hospital. If an expectant mother arrives between the hours of 10 pm – 5 am, when the waiting area is typically less full and proper physical distancing can be adhered to – the support person is permitted to wait in the Women’s Center lobby.

The support person will be required to remain in the hospital for the duration of the patient’s stay – no in/out privileges. PVHMC is providing complimentary meals for the support person during this time.
