VA St. Louis Health Care System is treating positive COVID-19 veterans in our inpatient unit and in the community. We are working to free up additional inpatient beds in anticipation of a surge in Veterans requiring inpatient medical care for COVID-19. More Details
Prepare for a visit: Everyone entering our facilities is screened, and visitors are limited. Face coverings are mandatory: we encourage you to bring your own, or you can use one we provide. Please contact us first before going to any of our locations. For some needs, you may be able to get care at home by phone or video.

Visitor Policy Update
As we continue to move forward with expanding services, there has been an increase in requests for visitors to accompany Veterans who are coming to the facility for outpatient, procedures, and inpatient care. Using updated guidance from Missouri Hospital Association on Visitor Restriction, our Visitor Restriction policy has changed. At JC, visiting hours will return for inpatients from 12 pm to 6 pm. One visitor per inpatient will be allowed, as long as the visit is limited to 60 minutes, the visitor is 18 years or older and the visitor stays in the Veteran’s room. No visitors will be allowed for JB inpatients at this time. Veterans who are coming in for outpatient appointments may have one person accompany them. Veterans are encouraged to come alone to their appointments to reduce risk of overflowing of our waiting spaces. Screening and masking is required for all Veterans and visitors.
