Memorial Health System is pleased to announce that the restriction placed on visitation at Memorial Hospital in Abilene has been lifted. Visitation was restricted as a precautionary measure to protect the health of patients, visitors, and staff. The initial restriction had been in place since December 27, 2017 due to wide-spread illness in the community. That restriction was lifted on March 16, and then re-instated during the evening of March 19. Although the prevalence of illness has decreased, Memorial Hospital asks anyone experiencing flu or flu-like symptoms to not visit.
