Visitor Guidelines


The health and safety of our patients and their loved ones remain a top priority. In accordance with California Department of Public Health guidelines, Sequoia Hospital is limiting visitors until further notice. All inpatients (except COVID-19 positive patients, unless otherwise approved) may have one (1) support person/visitor (including clergy) daily between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. 

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 (844) 244-5317. Thank you for your understanding and support as we work to keep our patients and community safe and healthy.
