Updates, Closings and Restrictions

UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown Relaxes Visitor Restrictions

As part of our commitment to keep our patients and visitors as safe as possible, UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown has the following visitor restrictions in place:

  • Only one visitor/support person per patient room
  • No visitors are allowed for patients in isolation
  • If your loved one is near his/her end-of-life, immediate family members may visit, but visitors must stay in the room with the patient and be symptom-free
  • For a religious visitation by clergy, eucharistic minister or other faith-based leader, COVID-19 screenings, mask requirements and hand sanitizing will be required on entry.

All visitors/support people must be in good health (no symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, fatigue, chills, vomiting or diarrhea).

All visitors/support people must wear a mask at all times.

Remember to wash and sanitize your hands upon entering and exiting a patient's room.

COVID-19 Testing for All Patient Admissions

UnityPoint Health will begin testing all patients admitted to our hospitals for COVID-19 beginning Wednesday, May 6. This will include planned admissions and transfers of all ages who have not been tested for COVID-19 in the prior 48 hours. Currently, we have enough tests and lab capacity for this change. Continuation of the expanded testing is dependent on testing availability. This is in addition to pre-procedural testing that will increase with the resumption of elective procedures.

Entrance Closure

UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown is closing the skywalk access over Main Street, while the main entrance and the emergency department entrance remain open. All patients and visitors at those locations will be given a health screening and issued a temporary badge upon entry to the facility. We encourage patients to wear a mask or face covering.

Elective Surgeries & Procedures

UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown resumed elective surgeries and procedures beginning May 18. These services will be reintroduced gradually with sensitivity to how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and ensuring guiding principles continues to be safely met.

This follows the announcement from Governor Kim Reynolds on April 24 that elective surgeries may be resumed. UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown suspended these procedures March 19 to help protect valuable workforce resources while also preserving supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The plan includes adherence to requirements such as sufficient supply of personal protective equipment, reserving adequate resources and testing patients for COVID-19 as indicated prior to procedures. The safety of team members, patients and community remains a top priority.
