At Irwin Army Community Hospital we take seriously the protection of patients and staff while recognizing the role that friends and family have in healing and recovery. As such, our team has consulted with experts and public health officials to update our visitor policy effective immediately.
All Outpatient and Inpatient Locations
Due to the low number of positive COVID 19 cases in the Fort Riley area, there is no longer a restriction on the number of visitors at IACH. Please continue to monitor communication coming from Fort Riley as this could change at any time. Visitors are welcome to visit inpatients daily in most areas and quiet hours are between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. daily. We ask that if you are visiting during these hours, please respect others need for rest and quiet time.
Visiting privileges or hours in specialty areas such as the Medical-Surgical Unit, Labor and Delivery/Mother-Baby Unit, and Inpatient Behavioral Health may be modified and are dependent on the patient's condition and therapy. Please contact the nursing staff before visiting or upon arrival in the appropriate ward to arrange visits.
Face masks are required at IACH if you:
- Have tested positive for COVID in the past 10 days
- Are having COVID or flu-like symptoms
- Have had close contact with someone with COVID in the past 10 days
If you are experiencing a cough, runny nose, sore throat, headaches, body aches, fever or any other signs of upper respiratory illness, please call the triage line 785 239-DOCS, option 7, instead of coming into the hospital unless it is an emergency.
