Visitor Information

You are welcome here.

At Alomere Health, we believe families and loved ones are an integral part of patient care, so our goal is to meet the needs of both patients and families by providing flexible, open visiting hours that support patient privacy and confidentiality.

Visiting Guidelines

Visitors are welcome at Alomere Health and our clinics, but we do have visiting guidelines to ensure a safe place for our patients and staff.

  • No more than two visitors are allowed at a patient’s bedside or appointment at one time.
  • Children under the age of 12 may visit patients only during daytime hours. It is the responsibility of parents to see that children are supervised by an adult at all times.
  • Anyone with an infection—even a cold or upper respiratory infection—should not visit a patient during their hospitalization.

About Our Community

While you’re visiting, we encourage you to get to know this amazing part of Minnesota. Alexandria has been named one of the Top 100 Small Towns in the Country by, and for good reason. You’ll find year-round recreation for the whole family and a thriving regional population of close to 100,000 people and over 1,000 growing businesses.

With a special blend of traditional values and progressive thinking, Alexandria is a great place for those who crave the pace of a small town but enjoy the recreational, artistic, cultural, and educational opportunities of a larger community. Around here, no matter where you are, you’re never far from the serene splendor of one of our beautiful lakes.

We’re located two hours west of the Twin Cities on I-94 in the heart of lake country. We like to say that we’re easy to get to and hard to leave.
