Hospitals in Northeast Central Ohio (NECO Region) have carefully evaluated revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio, and other sources such as, Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) and have determined hospital staff and visitors will continue to wear masks in the healthcare setting, regardless of vaccination status.
It is well recognized that in the healthcare setting, extra precautions are necessary to protect our vulnerable patient populations. This means that staff, patients, and visitors should continue to wear masks as recommended, in all healthcare facilities. NECO hospitals rely on the partnership of our visitors to help ensure the safety of our patients, this includes wearing a mask, not visiting if you are sick or have a temperature, hand-washing and following hospital visitation guidelines. Mask wearing and patient visitor guidelines will continue to be monitored and enforced at area hospitals.
New information presented by credible sources, such as the CDC, will continue to be evaluated and changes to these polices will be made, when appropriate. Our greatest concern is for the health and safety of our patients.

Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) is using virtual technology to help connect patients and their families during a hospital stay. The hospital recently launched a new “Virtual Visitor” patient video chat service that uses iPads to give patients the ability to hold video conference calls with their loved ones.
Each iPad is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between uses. Nursing staff can help assist patients in making the video calls if necessary; however, they do not need to be present during the call. In order to provide this opportunity to the maximum number of patients, individual patient calls will be limited to 30 minutes.
Anyone wishing to connect with a loved one using the Virtual Visitor video chat can make arrangements in advance by calling into the nurses’ station located on the patient’s floor. Following are the phone numbers for the patient floors: Tower 1 (330-332-7105), Tower 2 (330-332-7714) and Tower 3 (330-332-7369).
For visitors to connect with patients through a Virtual Visitor video chat, they will need:
A non-denominational Chapel, located on the hospital’s ground floor, is open 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week and offers a private setting for patients and visitors.
