Visitor Information

At Hilton Head Regional Healthcare, we have been adjusting our visitation policy as the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic evolves.

Emergency Department patients are not permitted to have a physical visitor at this time.

Patients of Coastal Carolina Hospital or Hilton Head Hospital who are admitted to the hospital, or are having an outpatient elective procedure are permitted to have one visitor.

Visitors will be screened for fever, respiratory symptoms or travel to high risk locations prior to entering the hospital, and required to wear visitor identification, a face mask, and sanitize their hands. Specific waiting areas allow physical distancing for designated visitors and include additional cleaning protocols.

Any visitor not meeting screening criteria will not be permitted to enter the hospital.

We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.


Our top priority is making sure our patients, visitors, staff and community remain safe. For that reason, we have decided to temporarily forego hosting events, such as educational medical seminars and classes, and health screenings, thereby lessening the potential for exposure to coronavirus. Please continue to check our website for information on when these events will resume.
