NOTICE: Update Hospital Access Policy

By Jorge Gomez

Starting Monday, May 6th, Irwin Army Community Hospital is implementing a revised access policy for the safety and security of our staff and patients. Please take note of the following changes:
  • Hospital Doors: Monday through Friday, hospital doors will be locked from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. On weekends and federal holidays, doors will remain locked. This does not apply to the Emergency Department entrance.
  • Stairwells 1 and 8: Stairwells 1 (near the chapel) and 8 (near the occupational therapy clinic) will also be locked during the specified hours.
During locked hours:
  • ScriptCenter Refills: Patients needing prescription refills from the ScriptCenter can access the kiosk by visiting/signing in at the check in desk and/or guard desk located in the Emergency Department (ED).
  • Inpatient Care Visitors: Visitors coming for inpatient care can also seek assistance/signing in at the ED check in or guard desk for access to the hospital.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding as we prioritize safety.
Don't forget to keep your family's information up-to-date in DEERS.
