Visitors Restricted at Ortonville Area Health Services

Important Notice to All OAHS Visitors

 

Flu season has arrived here in Ortonville. At Ortonville Area Health Services, our number one concern is the health and welfare of our patients and residents. For this reason we must take special precautions to protect our patients and resident’s and keep their care and recovery at the highest levels possible.

 

In order to accomplish this, the Medical Staff, infection control and administration have determined that we must restrict visitation to immediate family members who do not have any flu symptoms.  This restriction is for both Ortonville Hospital and Northridge Residence.

 

Our number one priority is to provide the highest level of health care to our community and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

If you have any questions please contact Nicole Lovgren, Infection Control Nurse at 320-839-4026 or the nurses station at either the hospital (320-839-4021) or Northridge Residence (320-839-6113).
