Welcome To Citizens Medical Center, Inc


As we enter into flu season, be sure to protect yourself and get the flue shot! 

Visitation Restrictions Advised

Due to high volumes of influenza in our community, Citizens Medical Center has advised visitor restrictions.  We are currently advising children from entering our facility unless they are here as the patient.  At Citizens Medical Center, the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff is our highest priority. While we realize these temporary steps may result in some inconvenience to family members and other visitors, we appreciate your understanding and support.

The steps put in place include the following:

  • It is suggested that children 12 years and younger do not visit the hospital unless they are there for medical care.
  • It is recommended that children not accompany individuals coming to the hospital for test/procedures (i.e., Lab, Radiology, Specialty Clinic).
  • Pregnant women, persons with compromised immune systems or pulmonary complications should visit only if absolutely necessary, and then with extreme caution.
  • If you have the flu or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, or headache and body aches), please stay home and seek medical attention if emergent conditions or concerns develop.
  • Additional restrictions may be in place in the patient area you are visiting.
  • With regard to the Labor and Delivery Unit, we will only allow siblings to visit that are not showing signs of illness. No other children should be in the Unit. Children must stay in the mother’s room at all times.

These guidelines are instituted for the protection of others as well as the population being restricted, and will remain in effect until further notice.
