Support from family and friends is an important part of the patient’s recovery process. We encourage you to visit your loved ones while they are at Ferrell. Please see the guidelines below, which are in place to help us maintain a healing environment. Exceptions to these rules can be made for end-of-life and other special circumstances.
To protect vulnerable patients receiving care in our hospitals and clinics, Ferrell Hospital will continue to require face masks within our facilities until further notice. This policy is in alignment with Executive Order 2022-06 from Gov. JB Pritzker, as well as the position of the Illinois Department of Public Health.

- Anyone wishing to enter or exit the hospital after 8 PM must do so through the Emergency Department.
- Appropriateness of immediate family or someone spending the night need to be evaluated based on several criteria including but not limited to the benefit to the patient and consent of roommate if in a semiprivate room.
- Children may visit on an inpatient unit during regular visiting hours when accompanied by an adult. Children must be supervised at all times by an adult who is not the patient.
