As members of our community and as health care advocates for all our patients, it is our responsibility to make important decisions for our area’s health and safety; this is especially true now. We understand the importance of an outside support network made up of close friends and family for recovery from illness. We also know the best care is given in partnership with our patients and their loved ones. As your partner in health, we take all necessary actions to protect our patients, employees, and community.

Beginning on Monday, February 15, 2021, we are allowing one visitor per patient per day between 12 and 7 p.m. at our hospitals. This includes Marietta Memorial Hospital, Selby General Hospital, and Sistersville General Hospital.

At our clinics and other locations, each patient is allowed one support person in the office. If you have any questions about our visitation policies, please call and clarify with your provider’s office prior to arrival.

We are grateful to our community for their support and understanding during this unprecedented time.
