Per Alaska Regional Hospital Visitor Policy, visiting may be limited or restricted based upon the patient’s condition and the discretion of the patient or caregiver.

Our priority is to provide a safe environment for all patients, staff, physicians, and visitors.

Circumstances may allow for specific exceptions to any visitation restrictions described on this webpage. Those circumstances include religious visitation as well as a designated support person for a patient with a disability to provide assistance with communication or other necessary components of the patient's treatment. All persons entering under an exception remain subject to appropriate infection control protocols.
