New visitor restrictions and COVID-19 screening
FHCC is restricting access at the main hospital to four main entrances and requiring patients and others to be screened for COVID-19 coronavirus before entering. This is for the protection of our patients, staff, volunteers and visitors and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Patients, staff and others will be screened for symptoms and exposure history. Please be patient and allow extra time for this process. Patients are encouraged to park in the parking garage to avoid long walks to open entrances.
Additionally, visitors are not allowed in our facilities for the time-being. Patients are asked to enter FHCC buildings alone, unless they need a companion for medical and/or safety reasons.
Please note: Beginning March 30, we will conduct COVID-19 screening of occupants in their vehicles as they enter the FHCC campus in North Chicago. Please be patient and allow for extra time.
We thank you for your patience. For details, please go to our Operating Status page.
