Due to high COVID positivity rates in our community as well as an increase in emergency department and inpatient COVID patient volume, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center is temporarily adjusting our visitation policy.

As of Monday, February 1, 2021 ALL GENERAL ADULT INPATIENT AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT VISITATION IS SUSPENDED.

Exceptions to this policy will be made for terminally ill patients as well as patients who require a designated support person, such as those patients with intellectual disabilities or developmental delays. In addition, laboring women will be permitted one designated support person.

Families are welcome to call our main number 718-206-6000 to receive updates on their loved ones. Our operators will forward you to the appropriate patient care area.

We also offer virtual visitation capabilities to connect patients and their loved ones. To schedule a virtual visit, please call us at 718-206-5959.

We thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation while we continue our efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, employees and visitors.
