Coming to the hospital
Masks required during entire visit:
Goshen Health is requiring masks at all locations for your entire visit. Wearing face masks in public areas is an important step in slowing the spread of the virus. Learn more about masks, recommendations or how to make a mask at home at: Cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html.
Should I schedule my annual wellness visit or screening with my provider?
Yes. All Goshen Physicians locations are now open and delaying care is not recommended. Your safety during your visit is your primary care provider’s top priority.
I understand the numbers in Elkhart County continue to rise. What has that meant to the hospital’s ability to handle cases?
Goshen Hospital has sufficient testing and COVID-19 beds available. By early February a response team was organized to lead the organization through the pandemic. This team coordinated everything from managing supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) to creating special temporary units at the hospital to provide enough beds to safely manage a surge in COVID-19 patients.

Is it safe to come to the hospital if I have an emergency?
Yes. If you are having an emergency, it could be far worse for you to postpone seeking treatment. We have implemented precautions to minimize exposure for patients, staff and visitors. These include restricting visitors, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing and using personal protective equipment when warranted – all according to strict clinical guidelines.
Will I be able to have my test (lab, imaging, radiology, etc.) done at Goshen Hospital?
Yes. Please check with your healthcare provider to confirm the timing of your test. Please note that you will need to have an appointment. We’re not accepting walk-ins currently. You can call (574) 364-2405 to schedule your appointment directly.
What Goshen Health locations are temporarily closed?
Cardiac Rehabilitation at Goshen Heart & Vascular Center remains closed. Maple Corner Boutique and Gift Shoppe at Goshen Hospital is also closed.
May I visit someone in the hospital?
For everyone’s safety, visitors are not permitted in the hospital at this time. We understand it is very difficult for families and friends to be unable to provide in-person support to their hospitalized loved ones. We appreciate the community’s partnership and understanding during this unprecedented time.
These are the exceptions – in each case, the adult must be healthy and pass the screening:
A further note on when a baby is born:
- Obstetrics/delivery – one adult allowed
- Pediatrics – one adult allowed
- End-of-life situations – up to two adults allowed
We are allowing one healthy adult visitor to accompany mothers for their entire stay, this includes labor and delivery.
Under what circumstances can I accompany someone to the hospital?
One healthy person is permitted to accompany a patient going to the Emergency Department, Outpatient Surgery or Outpatient Services. Furthermore, patients being admitted or discharged may also have one adult help them.
