MD Anderson strives to create a supportive, caring and healthy environment for patients while promoting optimal patient care. This includes promoting the involvement of family, friends, and loved ones in our patients’ care.
Due to the pandemic, we have updated our visitation guidelines to protect our immunocompromised patients and our employees from the risks of COVID-19. Effective March 24, 2020, caregivers or visitors are not allowed to accompany patients. There are special circumstances when a single adult caregiver will need to accompany or stay with a patient. Learn more about our patient visitation policy on our Coronavirus Precautions page.
Stay connected with your caregivers
Although access to our buildings is limited due to COVID-19, we understand how important it is to have support when talking about your health.
We encourage you to use your phone or tablet to stay connected with your family and friends. You can also include caregivers virtually in discussions with your care team. If you are unable to use your phone or tablet while in the hospital, we can help facilitate virtual visits. Due to safety and privacy concerns, live continuous video streaming will not be permitted.
Due to our response to COVID-19, all blood donations at MD Anderson
Blood Donor Center locations are being held by appointment only.
