Our hospital's current visitor information

In order to maintain maximum safety for our patients, staff and our visitors in the fight against the spread of COVID-19, Lee’s Summit Medical Center and our HCA MidAmerica hospitals have instituted changes to our visitor policy. We thank you for your cooperation with these new procedures.

In order to limit the amount of interpersonal contact, all patients will be limited to one designated support person (DSP) per hospital stay during designated visiting hours. No other visitors will be allowed. A DSP must be at least 18 years old, as these individuals are actively involved in patient care and discharge planning. Additionally, the DSP may need to assist medical staff with the patient's medical history, and will need to act as the primary caretaker for the patient after discharge. DSPs will be identified by an armband that will be given to them upon admission to the facility. If you are acting as a patient's DSP, please speak with a nurse or support staff member for more information.

We are dedicated to keeping our communities informed regarding emergency situations that may impact patient care.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
