Last Updated: Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 8:48am

There is no greater priority than the health and safety of our patients, team members and the communities we serve. COVID-19 is a novel virus that poses an unprecedented threat to our patients, especially those who are elderly, have underlying medical conditions or have compromised immune systems. As coronavirus concerns escalate quickly, we have expanded standardized visitor restrictions at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center and Goryeb Children's Hospital. 

No hospital visitors will be allowed until further notice.

Limited exceptions include:

  • One visitor/support person for patients in hospice or end-of-life care
  • One visitor/support person in the NICU
  • One visitor/support person for pediatric patients 
  • One visitor/support person for cognitively impaired patients
  • One designated support person for patients in the maternity centers*

Visitors who meet these exceptions must be at least 18 years of age.
