Dear Residents, Patients and Families,

At American Health Communities our highest priority is protecting the health and safety of those who live and work in our communities. We understand it is important for our residents and patients to stay connected with loved ones. Even with virtual visits and other technology to help, nothing replaces in-person visits.

With the successful rollout of COVID-19 vaccination clinics in long-term care facilities, and immediate drop in positive cases across the state, you may be aware the Tennessee Department of Health eased visitation restrictions for nursing homes. As of March 10, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), which regulates skilled nursing facilities, also revised the visitation guidelines we follow.

We understand measures to keep everyone safe during the pandemic have been difficult on families and our residents, and we are excited to expand visitation in our nursing homes where we meet the CMS criteria. We are safely facilitating visitation by appointment to address residents’ social and emotional needs. We are also gradually expanding communal dining and other activities and services. Per CMS visitation guidance found at CMS.gov, visitation may be limited at times by local conditions, including county positivity rates, local cases, and vaccination status. Please call your AHC Community for details.

To join us for a visit, please:

  • Call your AHC Community to confirm local visitation guidelines and schedule an appointment.
  • The number of visitors may be limited based on capacity. Please do not bring pets at this time.
  • Be prepared for all visitors to complete an on-site health screening.  
  • CMS and AHC recommend visitors receive a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available and be tested prior to their visit.
  • All visitors must wear a well-fitted face mask over their nose and mouth.
  • Agree to follow the core principles of infection prevention with hand hygiene and maintaining appropriate social distance during your visit.

Even as COVID-19 case counts decline, our AHC community will remain vigilant in monitoring for positive cases among residents and staff members through appropriate screening and testing. We will also continue infection prevention and control measures in accordance with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and regulatory requirements of the federal government (CMS). We are closely monitoring our test results and county positivity rates for any changes. We will be providing timely updates regarding changes to visitation policies on this page.
