Winneshiek Medical Center is deferring all elective care (care that can wait until later without putting you at risk).

This includes elective surgeries, procedures and office visits.

Semi-urgent, urgent and emergency care will continue in clinic and hospital settings. This deferment is in alignment with Mayo Clinic and Gundersen Health System.

If you have an appointment already scheduled, Winneshiek Medical Center staff will be contacting you to reschedule, if necessary.

Visitor restrictions updates
Visiting hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 pm for “well” visitors only.

Well includes:
• No fever
• No cough
• No sore throat
• No achiness

Visitors must be over the age of 18.

There is a one-visitor limit per inpatient stay (same visitor for the duration of the patient stay).

A spouse/support person is the allowed visitor in the OB department.

All visitors must clean their hands before entering any patient room— WMC provides hand sanitizer wall dispensers throughout the facility.

All visitors will be screened prior to entering the facility.

“Thank you for your understanding as we prepare our facility to respond to the needs of our communities,” a hospital representative said.
