Lumberton Hospital Expands Visiting Hours

UNC Health Southeastern has expanded visiting hours for the medical center to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the hospital will continue to follow CDC and other applicable guidelines (CMS, No Patient Left Alone Act, etc.) and update the visitation policy to reflect these changes. The health and safety of patients, teammates and clinicians remains the top priority across the system.

Standard visitation guidelines require all medical center visitors to be age 16 or older. Visitors are required to present a valid photo I.D. and must wear their visitor badge at all times.

Visitors are still required to properly wear a hospital grade facemask while inside any UNC Health Southeastern facility.

To learn more, call UNC Health Southeastern Patient Relations at (910) 671-5592.
