The health and safety of our patients and their loved ones remain a top priority. In accordance with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines, Sequoia Hospital is again restricting all visitors until further notice. 
 
Virtual visitation is encouraged, when possible. Patients can use the hospital’s free Wi-Fi and use personal devices to stay in touch with family and friends. Families may also contact patients through the hospital by calling (650) 369-5811. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you for your understanding and support.
