Saint Luke’s Health System is committed to the health and safety of our patients, visitors, and staff. Effective Nov. 1, 2021, full COVID-19 vaccination is a condition of employment for all SLHS employees.

With the continued spread of COVID-19, Hedrick Medical Center and Wright Memorial Hospital have revised visitor policies in accordance with policies in place with Saint Luke's Kansas City area hospitals, including a mandatory mask policy.

Level 4 restricted visitor guidelines restrict visitors to one visitor per patient per day, no visitor re-entry, and no visitors under the age of 14. Masks are always required to be worn by the visitors, even in the patient rooms. 

No visitors will be allowed in the Emergency Departments. Exceptions to this restriction will be made for patients under 18 or for patients who are cognitively impaired.
