SMMC Implements a No Visitor Policy

The health and safety of our patients, visitors, employees, and our communities remain our top priority at Scenic Mountain Medical Center (SMMC). Therefore, in line with the latest guidance provided by the CDC and the Texas Department of State Health related to COVID-19, we maintain a no visitor policy with the following exceptions:

  • End-of-life patients:
    • There may be 1 visitor at a time, limited to immediate family only
    • Other visitors must remain outside the facility until rotated in
  • Pediatric patients:
    • No more than 2 designated visitors per hospital stay
  • Laboring or Post-partum patients:
    • 1 designated visitor/labor partner per hospital stay

All patients who enter the hospital through available access points will be screened immediately upon arrival. Points of entrance will be limited to:

  • Hospital main entrance
  • Emergency Department Entrance

SMMC has taken every precaution and made the necessary preparations to care for patients in a safe, controlled and professional way. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep our community safe.
