With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there are constant challenges and changes that we are experiencing in our hospital, community, state, and nation. Minden Medical Center is receiving daily updates from the CDC, the Department of Public Health and input from our governor as well. Based on the direction and instruction from these sources, Minden Medical Center is following recommended guidelines and will institute a NO VISITOR policy to limit and reduce traffic through the hospital, effective March 23, 2020. The front lobby entrance will no longer be accessible and the only entry point will be through the Emergency Department entrance. We trust that you will be understanding as we attempt to do everything possible for controlling the COVID-19 challenge that we are facing and as we strive to protect our patients, healthcare workers and community. MMC will continue to provide additional information and updates when available.
