Patient parking is available on both the north and south campuses.


Please review the information below for details on our current Visitor Guidelines and Visiting Hours.

As our ministry continues to respond to COVID-19, patient and team member safety remains our highest priority. We will continue to limit visitors within our St. Dominic’s facilities. This practice will be in place until the transmission of COVID-19 is no longer a threat to our patients, team and community.

Listed below is an outline of the expectations for all visitors, the exceptions and screening protocols.


All visitors are asked to self-screen daily for symptoms, including:

  • History of positive COVID diagnosis within the last 10 days
  • Exposure to a positive COVID person within the last 10 days
  • Fever greater than or equal to 100.4°F
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion that differs from their typical seasonal allergies
  • Body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of smell/taste
  • Diarrhea
  • We ask that visitors with any of these symptoms refrain from entering the facility.


St. Dominic's has adjusted the masking requirement to follow Mississippi State Department of Health and CDC guidelines.

Visitors and patients who are vaccinated are not required to wear a mask while visiting our facilities.

If the patient and visitors are vaccinated and from the same household, no mask is needed once they are in the patient's room or in general areas throughout our facilities. Masks are encouraged in waiting rooms and when interacting with a medical provider in the patient's room.

If the patient and/or the visitor are unvaccinated, we ask that they wear a mask for the duration of the visit.

Patients who are immunocompromised or seeking care for respiratory illness are encouraged to wear a mask throughout our facilities, regardless of vaccination status.

Masks are required for ALL team members, regardless of vaccination status, during any interaction with a patient. This includes but is not limited to:

Infection Prevention

With the well-being and protection of our patients, team and community in mind, we kindly ask that all those visiting or entering our facility:

  • Wear a mask at all times if not vaccinated

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Limit movement outside of assigned hospital room to entering/leaving the building or getting food.

Connecting Virtually

We understand and recognize how important the support of family and loved ones are to our patients while we care for them. While our visitor policies can make connecting in person difficult, it is for the safety of those we care for, our team, our community and our patients’ loved ones. We encourage our patients to visit virtually with their loved ones through mobile phones and smart phones so they can still be connected and feel supported during their time with us.

Your clinical care team in the patient’s inpatient care area and support navigators are available to facilitate virtual communication between patients and their loved ones who are concerned.

Thank you for your partnership in protecting our patients, team members and yourself. Together, we can keep one another, our patients and our community safe.

Finding a Patient

Guest Services staff at both the South Hospital and North Medical Mall Information Desks will be able to tell you the room number and directions to your loved one’s room. It is always a good idea to check in with the nursing station once you’ve arrived on the floor to be sure the person you are looking for is available and accepting visitors.
