Hospital visitor restrictions in effect!
Masks/face coverings continue to be required at CMH for patients, caregivers and any visitors until notified otherwise.
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 COVID-19. If you need medical care, please call your primary care provider’s office, use a Virtual Urgent Care, or visit an Urgent Care Clinic.
CMH is following the Oregon Health Authority guidelines for screening and entrance to hospitals. Due to increased COVID activity in Clatsop County, CMH is limiting visitors to the hospital. This is a temporary change, and we will continue monitoring the statewide metrics to allow visitors to return when it is safe.
As of 8/24/2021, entry is limited to:
If patients have concerns about seeing their loved ones who are in the hospital, we do have assistive technology, including iPads and tablets, to connect them through a group Skype or phone call. They can call the nursing staff in the patient’s unit to ask about this option.
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 Quality Management at 503-338-7475.

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 continue to be required for health care organizations and hospitals. 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 five (5) are required to mask unless they have a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a mask. Patients two to five (2-5) years old are strongly recommended, but not required, to wear a mask. Children under two (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.
