Welcome Back Services and Visitation Policy Updates at Saint Barnabas Medical Center

The safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff is our number one priority. Please be aware of the following newly revised guidelines before visiting one of our hospitals or healthcare facilities:

General Visitation Guidelines

Fever-free and symptom-free individuals will be provided and required to:

  • Wear a face mask at all times
  • Practice hand hygiene upon arrival to the facility

As the safety and well-being of our community, patients, visitors and staff is our number one priority, we wanted to share the following information with you during the COVID-19 pandemic. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

Flower and Plant Delivery
RWJBarnabas Health facilities will no longer be accepting flower and plant deliveries for any patients or employees, effective March 20. The intention is to decrease all non-essential visitors, including delivery personnel, at our entrance points. While we are sensitive to the difficulties facing loved ones of our hospitalized patients, patient and staff safety is paramount at this unprecedented time.

Valet Service
Valet Service at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center will be suspended as of March 20, 2020.

Emergency Department

When it comes to serious ailments such as heart attack or stroke, time is of the essence to seek treatment. Concern about the coronavirus outbreak should not keep patients from seeking medical attention in urgent situations. Saint Barnabas Medical Center hears your concerns and we’re taking extra precautions around cleanliness and sterilization to protect our patients and their families.

Please note, SBMC is NOT a COVID-19 testing location. Individuals who desire COVID-19 testing should speak to their primary care physicians.

The Cancer Center

  • Our cancer services are fully operational for all treatments and in-person and telemedicine appointments are available.
  • In an effort to protect our patients, visitors will only be allowed to accompany patients if clinically indicated.
