Providence Alaska Medical Center Visitation Guidelines

To protect our patients, staff and community from the spread of COVID-19, we have four visiting levels: green, yellow, orange and red. We choose these levels based on how many people have COVID-19 in Alaska and Anchorage, and busyness of the hospital. 

Current visitation level 

As of Monday, Sept. 6, Providence Alaska Medical Center is in Visitation Level Red in the main hospital and in the Emergency Department.

Please note: Visiting guidelines may change as needed for the safety of patients and staff.

We want you and your loved one to stay in touch when you are not here. Options include:  

  • Phone calls

  • Voice recorder
