Our patients' visitors are welcome guests. In compliance with CDC guidance, visitors at Bourbon Community Hospital will have the option to mask. A mask will be provided upon request.
The companionship of loved ones can aid in a speedy recovery, however, rest and therapy are important too. For that reason we encourage friends and loved ones to limit their visits to short periods within our visiting hours.
