The hospital, physician practices and specialty centers all have important screening and safety measures in place for when you come to see us. We’ve taken extra steps, and you may notice some changes in how we provide care.

Upon your Arrival
If you have a scheduled appointment at Valley View Hospital, please arrive a few minutes in advance. To best protect you, please self-park at one of the parking lots immediately adjacent to the hospital. Our valet team is available at the lower entrance (Calaway Young Cancer Center entrance) if a patient requires physical assistance. All patients, visitors and employees are being screened for Valley View staff for COVID-19 symptoms at our doors.
All patients and visitors are required to wear a mask that covers both their mouth and nose while at any Valley View location. To best protect you and others, we encourage surgical or medical grade masks. This includes the Valley View Hospital campus and our other locations across the community. Valley View highly encourages people to bring their own mask. However, if a patient or visitor does not have a mask, Valley View will provide one. If someone is unwilling to wear a mask, they will not be permitted to enter or stay in the facility. Per the Centers for Disease Control, wearing masks helps slow the spread of COVID-19 which still exists in our community. Masks are also required per an order by the state of Colorado. Thank you for helping protecting our providers, staff and other patients and visitors.
All patient care areas in our hospital and clinics are regularly and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. There are designated areas for non-COVID-19 patients, separate from COVID-19 patients.
Patients and staff should follow public health’s recommendation of physical distancing, also referred to as social distancing, by staying six feet apart from other people, not gathering in groups and staying out of crowded places. Seating in waiting rooms and other public areas have additional spacing to allow for physical distancing.
Staff Policies and Procedures
