Info for Visitors

Read all updates on visiting Providence

For everyone’s safety, we are not allowing patient visits at this time unless:

  • You have applied for, been accepted, and scheduled a visit as an Essential Care Partner, and
  • You are feeling well, and
  • You have not tested positive for COVID-19, and
  • You do not have a close contact who has tested positive for COVID-19

Please do not come to the hospital if you have not been approved to visit.

Based on the rate of community transmission of COVID-19, we have reduced the presence of Essential Care Partners (visitors) at our three sites of Unity Health Toronto to help keep our patients, staff and community safe. This is being balanced with the need to support Essential Care Partner presence, which is critical to the recovery and experience of our patients.

Patients staying at Providence Healthcare (not in the Houses of Providence), who have been in hospital for longer than seven (7) days may have one designated essential care partner who can visit once a week at a scheduled time for a maximum of three (3) hours.

Patients coming to hospital for a day visit – such as an outpatient appointment or test - are not allowed to have an Essential Care Partner with them except in certain exceptions.
