Winchester – Coming to WDMH – What You Need to Know.
To help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), patient visits are not permitted at this time at Winchester District Memorial Hospital. Exceptions may be made on compassionate grounds.
Obstetrics patients may bring one support person with them.
Everyone coming to WDMH will be required to use the main entrance of the hospital (between 6 am and 6 pm) or the Emergency Department entrance (24/7 for emergencies). Mandatory screening will take place. At this time, regularly scheduled tests, clinics, rehabilitation and surgery will continue but will be reviewed daily.
