COVID-19 Patient Visitation Policy
Penn State Health is committed to the safety of patients, staff, visitors and the general public. We are currently only permitting family/support persons to accompany patients within our facilities. One family/support person is permitted per adult inpatient visit per day. Two parents/guardians are permitted per pediatric inpatient visit per day. Per the visitation restriction policy, no visitors, aside from patient-designated family/support persons, are allowed at this time. View additional visitation information.
Milton S. Hershey Medical Center has a gift shop, in-hospital dining options like Au Bon Pain, Starbucks and a full cafeteria, and also has free wifi.
