Cottage Health Enhances Security Measures at Hospitals

Cottage Health continuously evaluates security procedures and partners with independent agencies to help keep our hospitals safe and maintain healing environments. This year we have decided to implement new security recommendations and want to share these with community members who may be visiting our hospitals.

Effective March 1, new security measures will include photo identification for visitors.

Photos will be taken at our hospitality desks upon check-in and printed on daily visitor passes. This will enable hospital staff to more quickly identify authorized visitors within the hospitals. Minors under age 14 will be provided with passes including only the photo of their accompanying adult.

We appreciate the community’s support in helping us to successfully implement past security enhancements. Thank you for helping us to protect our patients, community and hospital staff.
