QNHCH Changes to Visitor Policy


Effective, Wednesday, September 8, one screened visitor with proof of vaccination will be allowed for inpatients at Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital during visiting hours, 11 am – 7 pm.

Visitors must be over 18 years of age and are required to have had their final dose of an FDA-EUA COVID-19 vaccination, providing proof with a vaccination card or an electronic copy.  Visitors are required to wear a surgical mask over their nose and mouth at all times and no eating or drinking is allowed.   Out-of-state or international visitors must also present proof of a negative COVID-19 test result.

Limited exceptions may be made in certain situations such as pediatric or maternity patients and end-of-life care; additional screening will be required.

“We recognize the importance of family in the healing process and believe we can safely support a more patient-centered care environment by allowing a vaccinated visitor who has also undergone our screening process,” said QNHCH President Cindy Kamikawa.
