BUFFAO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center will allow inpatient visitation on a limited basis beginning February 13.

"With new COVID-19 case totals in Erie County declining four weeks in a row and the majority of its staff now vaccinated, Roswell Park Comprehensive Center is once again able to allow inpatient visitation on a limited basis," a release says.

Inpatients can designate one person to visit during their entire hospital stay and visitation will be during the following days and times:

  • Wednesdays, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Saturdays and holidays, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Roswell says guidelines remain the same. All patients and guests must be screened for symptoms and travel at the front entrance, face coverings are required and practice good hand hygiene.

“We are thrilled to safely welcome back friends and family of patients with open arms,” said Pamela Giesie, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, CNOR, FABC, Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Patient Care Services at Roswell Park. “The comfort and support a visitor brings can be so beneficial to a patient’s well-being.”
