At St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital the safety of our patients, visitors, employees and physicians are our top priority. During this crucial time, we are limiting visitation hours to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We are only allowing two visitors at a time, and only one is allowed to stay overnight with a patient. We are asking the public to refrain from visiting patients. In addition, we are not allowing visitors under the age of 18 for their safety and the safety of our patients. The only exception will be for siblings of newborn patients.

Compassionate exceptions will be made for critical patient situations as needed.
