PHH announces change in hours at entrance

Posted: Friday, October 30, 2020

After October 31, patients and visitors at Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) will notice that the hours have changed for access at the main entrance.

PHH leaders announced that, for operational reasons, the main entrance will be open from 6:30 a.m.to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. During all other times, patients and visitors should use the Emergency Department entrance, which will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We want patients and visitors to be able to plan accordingly when they know they’ll be coming to the hospital,” said Juli Johnson, president, PHH.

On weekdays, patients arriving for surgical procedures or testing prior to 6:30 a.m. should plan to enter at the Emergency Department. Patients coming to the hospital on weekends and on major holidays – such as Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – should use the Emergency entrance, as usual.

As part of Parkview Health’s patient and visitor screening process, all patients and guests will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms (or possible exposure) upon their arrival at the facility. Screening will include a touchless temperature check and several brief questions.

As a reminder, masks are required and will be provided for individuals who do not have them.
