Russell County Hospital continues to serve our mission of providing healthcare in the communities we serve; we are dedicated to safeguarding the health and safety of our patients as well as RCH Staff, Volunteers and Visitors.

For weeks we have carefully monitored the coronavirus situation and have worked to be prepared to provide care when and if needed.

Please note this is subject to change as this situation unfolds.

Effective Tuesday, March 17 the following restrictions have been placed on those visiting the hospital. The entrance doors (with the exception of ER) will be closed from 6:00 PM each evening to 7:00 AM Monday - Friday. The doors will also be closed from 6:00 PM Friday and re-open at 7:00 AM Monday.

Anyone who is here as a patient/minor can have one person accompany them if necessary.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever, aches or shortness of breath or you have traveled to an area where you may have been exposed to COVID-19 please contact your Medical Provider for further directions before going to a doctor office or emergency room.
