Visitation Temporarily Suspended
Per our visitation policy, when the state’s COVID-19 positivity rate averages more than 10% over a 7 day period, we suspend all visitation to protect our patients and our staff. This is reevaluated weekly.
Visit SC DHEC for additional information.
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to keep our patients & staff members safe!

We know that patients look forward to having visitors while they are in the hospital. Here are some visiting tips that will help make your loved one’s stay at AAMC easier:
- Limit the number of visitors to two at a time
- Keep visits short
- Occasionally a nurse may ask you to shorten your visit or to leave the room briefly.
- Make sure the person you’re at AAMC to see isn’t too ill to receive visitors. It may be better to send a card, flowers or balloons.
- If you are sick, please do not come for a visit.
- Knock before entering the patient’s room to make sure they’re not asleep or getting dressed or a physician or nurse is with them providing care.
- Be sure to check for any restrictions the patient may have before bringing a gift, especially food.
- Don’t talk about the experiences or problems of other people who have had the same health problem. Share positive thoughts.
- If a physician or nurse comes into the room during your visit, ask them if you need to leave for a few minutes while they care for the patient.
- Your loved-one is in the hospital to get well! Please keep your visiting time to a length that is comfortable for the patient.
