Welcome to Dearborn County Hospital! Our priority is to not only provide our patients with extraordinary care and medical excellence but to extend our warm and compassionate care to those visiting with us as well. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Please click here for directions to DCH.
DCH has unrestricted visiting but we ask that you please be considerate of the patient at all times. However, during various seasons, visitation may be restricted to reduce possible spread of disease, i.e. flu season.
Our Birthing Center and Intensive Care Unit have more specific guidelines. Please call the Birthing Center at 812-537-8273 or 800-676-5572, extension 8273, or the Intensive Care Unit at 812-537-8267 or 800-676-5572, extension 8267, for information specific to that department.
A patient may request to restrict visitors at any time. The hospital would, at the request of the patient, change the patient to a confidential patient. The patient can change this request at any time.
Visiting in the treatment area of the Emergency Department will be at the discretion of the staff.
All visitors arriving after 8:00 pm or before 6:00 am will need to enter through the DCH Emergency Department entrance.
