As the number of new COVID-19 cases continues to decline throughout our community, Odessa Regional Medical Center is pleased to share modifications to our Visitor Policy, effective Nov. 8, 2021.

In line with guidance provided by the CDC and the Texas State Department of Health related to COVID-19, ORMC will have the following visitor restrictions for COVID patients: One visitor for adult COVID patients from 1pm-3pm daily. Pediatric and Obstetric COVID patients will be allowed 2 visitors. Case-by-case exceptions will also be made for special circumstances such as end of life issues.

For all other patients, we will roll back to our normal visitation policy. General visiting hours are from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm and extended visiting hours may be arranged at the discretion of the patient’s physician and the nursing supervisor/director. CCU patients can be visited from 8:00 am to 6:45 pm and 7:45 pm to 9:00 pm. Only two visitors are allowed in a patient room at any time.

All patients who enter the hospital through available access points will be screened immediately upon arrival. Points of entrance will be limited to:

  • ER main entrance 24/7
  • West Campus south entrance

“Decreasing COVID-19 positivity and hospitalization rates in our community makes us feel more comfortable amending our visitor restrictions. It is also the right move for our patients and their families while they are undergoing treatment” said Rohith Saravanan, Chief Medical Officer at Odessa Regional Medical Center.”

If you are not a provider working at our facility, a hospital employee, or seeking immediate medical attention, we ask that you avoid the hospital.

If you are experiencing a cough, fever, and/or shortness of breath or have been in direct contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, please call your primary physician’s office. Your physician will help determine whether you may come in for an appointment, or if you should stay at home and await further instruction.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep our community safe.
