A Message to our Community about Visitation

Providence Regional Medical Center Everett

Providence Regional Medical Center has adjusted our visitor policy to keep our patients, visitors, and caregivers safe – while supporting our patients and their families. We continue to monitor the COVID cases in our community and in the hospital and will adjust our visitor policy accordingly.

We understand the importance of seeing loved ones while they are receiving care and know the value visitors bring to our patients. We appreciate your help in keeping our patients, visitors, and caregivers safe. Thank you.
