Welcome! Columbia Memorial Hospital (CMH) and CMH Medical Group caregivers are doing everything they can to keep you safe, but we need your help. Please review these guidelines.
Thank you for your cooperation. This is the best way to protect our patients, staff and community from spreading the novel coronavirus. If you need medical care, please call your primary care provider’s office, use a Virtual Urgent Care, or visit an urgent care clinic.
Everyone entering a CMH facility must be screened for COVID-19. This is to protect patients, staff and the community and to comply with Oregon Health Authority mandates. If you feel that you have been inappropriately restricted from CMH, please contact patient relations at 503-338-4003.
You may be denied entry if:
Questions you will be asked:
Anyone entering the CMH-OHSU Knight Cancer Collaborative will also have their temperature taken with a touch-less, infrared thermometer.
Door Hours: Please note that some hospital entrances have been closed or have limited hours.
Masks are required for all public indoor spaces in Oregon. If you arrive at a CMH facility without a mask or cloth face covering, you will be given a mask.
Patients and visitors over the age of 12 are required to mask unless they have a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a mask. Patients 2-12 years old are strongly recommended, but not required, to wear a mask. Children under 2 years old are excluded from masking requirements.
Companions or visitors who refuse to wear a mask will be asked to leave unless they have a medical condition that contraindicates wearing a mask and they are essential to the patient’s care. If they have such a medical condition, they should be asked to be present only when absolutely necessary, not talk any more than required to assist the patient, and to practice physical distancing at all times.
CMH is following the Oregon Health Authority guidelines for screening and entrance to hospitals.
When visiting a patient in the hospital, please:
Talk to a nurse on the CMH COVID-19 Community Hotline at 503-338-4699. This hotline is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
