Visitor Information: SSM Health St. Clare Hospital - Baraboo

COVID-19 VISITOR & CLOTH FACE MASK GUIDELINES

As SSM Health considers the best way to care for our patients’ physical and emotional health, we recognize that family and loved ones are an important part of the care team. In order to promote the safety of our patients, healthcare workers and the community, we are suspending hospital visits at SSM Health St. Clare Hospital in Baraboo. This is a temporary measure in response to the increased community spread of COVID-19, effective Monday, November 9, 2020.

Visitors over 18 years of age may still be allowed in the following circumstances:

  • Compassionate care exceptions may be made in end-of-life situations or when a visitor is essential for the patient's emotional well-being and care.
  • Family Birth Suite patients will be allowed one visitor per day, with permission of a nursing leader.
  • Patients in pediatric settings will be allowed one visitor per day, with permission of a nursing leader.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, VISITORS MUST WEAR A CLOTH FACE COVERING OR MASK AT ALL TIMES WHILE THEY ARE AT ONE OF OUR FACILITIES.

Additional information regarding the current visitor process:

  • Visitors will be asked to complete a health screening before being approved to visit.
  • Visitors will be encouraged to remain in the patient room during the duration of their visit and will be encouraged to bring supplies they need for the day to avoid movement within the hospital (such as reading materials, food, drinks, etc.).
  • The cafeteria is closed to visitors at this time. 

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time.


Visitors can be good medicine for patients. We encourage family members and friends to visit. In order to maintain a safe, comfortable healing environment, the following visiting guidelines have been established:

  • Visitors must dress appropriately (shirts and shoes are required).
  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Be quiet in respect for those patients who are resting.
