Current Visitor Restrictions due to Flu

Anderson Hospital must sometimes implement temporary visitor restrictions during the flu season.   Due to widespread flu activity, we are taking these precautionary steps as advised by the Illinois Department of Public Health and CDC:

  • No visitors displaying flu-like symptoms (cough, runny nose, etc.)
  • No visitors under age 18 allowed on patient floors
  • Visitors in the Pavilion for Women are limited to baby's sibling(s) and 4 others as determined by the mother.

Please respect the visitor restrictions we have in place.  The restrictions protect our patients and staff from outside germs, and they protect visitors from leaving the hospital with germs!   

**With the influx of patients in our ER, we have seen entire families coming in for one patient to be seen.  By doing this, you risk exposing well people to sick people.   By keeping the ER visit to just the patient and their designee, you can greatly reduce the spread of germs.

Please check back before visiting to see what restrictions may be in place due to this year's widespread Flu cases.
