SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System expanded visitation to allow two visitors per patient in most cases starting Monday.

According to hospital officials, visitors will be provided masks upon entering the hospital and will be required to wear the masks throughout the duration of their visits. Visitors will be asked to properly wash or sanitize their hands and may be screened prior to entry.

Patients receiving visitors will be required to wear masks as they move throughout the hospital and while visitors are in the room.

“We understand the important role loved ones play in supporting patients. We are pleased that as COVID-19 cases have declined we are able to expand visitation again,” said Phil Feisal, president of Spartanburg Medical Center. “As the holiday season approaches, we ask everyone to continue protecting yourself against COVID-19. Please wash your hands, wear your masks when appropriate and, if you have not already been, get vaccinated.”

The visitation change applies to the following hospital campuses:

  • Spartanburg Medical Center – Church Street Campus
  • Spartanburg Medical Center – Mary Black Campus
  • Cherokee Medical Center
  • Union Medical Center
