Maternity Visitors

Sharing the experience of new life is very important to you and everyone who wants to see the new baby. While we welcome visitors, we urge you to limit the number of visitors and the length of visits.

The father and/or birth partner may be with you and your baby at any time. Family members, especially grandparents and siblings, are also welcome to visit. While siblings may visit at any time, we ask that an adult accompany young children. Anyone holding the baby should thoroughly wash his or her hands first. All other visitors may visit at the discretion of the parent(s).


Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Guidelines

Because your baby needs specialized care, strict visitation guidelines must be followed:

  • The unit is locked at all times.
  • Parents and grandparents may visit at any time, with some exceptions.
  • Immunized siblings over age four are welcome to visit for 15 minutes from noon-8 p.m.
  • Visitors over age 14 may visit between noon-8 p.m. with a parent in attendance.

About the provider search

This search will provide you with WellSpan Medical Group and Northern Lancaster County (Ephrata) Medical Group primary care physicians and specialists. If we don’t have a WellSpan Medical Group physician to meet your criteria, the search will expand to include community physicians who partner with WellSpan Medical Group physicians through the WellSpan Provider Network or provide care to patients on the Medical Staffs of WellSpan’s Hospitals.
