There is a one visitor policy – per patient - in place in an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
During the ongoing pandemic outbreak, NHB has implemented expanded drive-through screening and triage support. The drive-through format follows CDC criteria for screening and testing. Everyone—staff, patient, or visitor—who arrives on base goes through the same procedure. This is a best practice across the military health system and in the civilian network. The drive-through is a safe and efficient way to effectively assess patients. The drive-through screening is open 0730-2000, Monday through Friday and 0900-2000 Saturday and Sunday.
Patients coming to the hospital for Labor and Delivery services continue to have access to the hospital 24 hours a day 7 days a week. After-hours Labor and Delivery patients are being directed to the one open entry point into the facility by the staff manning the check point.
