Welcome Message

A Message From Our CEO

Aurora San Diego Hospital will be following current CMS, CDHP and SD County Public Health Orders. As such, we will be suspending masking requirements effective 4/3/23 on hospital and outpatient grounds UNLESS in designated YELLOW or RED Zones. Though we will be in alignment with CDHP orders we will continue to monitor local COVID positivity rates and may need to pivot to mask mandates at some point.

Also, effective 4/3/23 CDHP no longer requires vaccination for healthcare workers. However, per Federal Guidance for Staff Vaccination Requirements, all Medicare and Medicaid Certified Providers, including Aurora San Diego Hospital, must ensure that all applicable staff are vaccinated with the COVID-19 primary series.

Please go to Visiting Hours Page for current visiting hours, days and updated guidelines.

Thank you all for all you have done to get us to a place where we can adjust protocols to the current enviornment.
