To Our Community

On behalf of everyone at Einstein Healthcare Network, we thank you for your continued support and patience during these unprecedented times. We want to assure you that Einstein remains steadfast in our commitment to providing excellent patient-centered care to the communities we serve.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have been working diligently to create a more safe and comfortable environment in all of our hospitals, outpatient care centers and in our provider offices. We have added many new measures to ensure the health and safety of our patients, medical staff and employees.

Scheduling Appointments


Our physician offices remain ready to provide care including telephone and virtual visits for routine follow up care and most urgent care needs. For in-person exams, diagnostic workups, and interventional care, know that all operations continue with increased safety measures. Call your physician's office to make an appointment or request an appointment online. We will provide guidance on the best way to obtain care.

Enhanced Safety Protocols

Enhanced Safety Protocols for Surgery Patients

Because your safety is our highest priority, Einstein has developed enhanced protocols for surgery procedures. Here’s what you can expect as you prepare for your surgery.

COVID-19 Testing

Einstein Healthcare Network is currently performing COVID-19 testing at two sites - one for the community (in partnership with the City of Philadelphia) and one specifically for patients. Appointments are required at both sites. Learn more.

Visitor Policies

To ensure a safe environment for Einstein Healthcare Network patients and visitors amid the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Greater Delaware Valley, we continue to restrict visitation to Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, Center One, MossRehab, Willowcrest, Einstein Medical Center Elkins Park, Einstein Medical Center Montgomery and all outpatient practices.

  • Hospital Inpatients: There is currently no inpatient visitation unless authorized by the clinical leadership team.
  • Physician Offices: Children and people with disabilities or special needs may be accompanied by one support person. Please check with the office if you have questions or specific needs.
  • Emergency Departments: Visitors are now allowed in the Emergency Department at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Einstein Medical Center Elkins Park. (Approved visitors/support people include the parent or guardian of a minor child, one adult requested by the patient, and family members participating in end-of-life visitation.) Visitors remain restricted in the Emergency Department at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery unless authorized by the clinical leadership team. 
  • Oncology: All outpatient Medical Oncology & Hematology and Radiation Oncology departments have a zero visitor policy unless authorized by the clinical leadership team.

​​All visitors and patients will be screened. Visitors must wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines. 

While we understand the important role that family members and visitors play in a patient's healing process, our new policies (which align with many other area hospitals and health systems) aim to balance the needs of patients while maintaining a safe environment for all. Check back for updates to this policy.
