Kelowna General Hospital:
Explore Your Birthing Place


Thank you for visiting and exploring options related to your birth preparation. At this time, we are following any change relating the policy around Covid guidelines at Kelowna General Hospital. All Birth will keep you updated on any policy change.
****At this time, there are no tours offered for Kelowna General Hospital***

Below you will find the latest guidelines and policies as it relates to the pandemic. 

In order to continue providing safe care during this time, the perinatal unit at Kelowna General Hospital is continuing a strict pandemic policy. Please share this widely to anyone who may need to see it:

  • Only ONE support person in labour. This one support person will also be the only person allowed on the ward. Unfortunately this means NO visitors once you’ve had your baby. Please ensure your support person is healthy and has not travelled outside of Canada.
  • The waiting room has recently reopened however no visitors are allowed entrance to the hospital unless it is the birthing person and the partner
  • If you have a fever and cough please call L&D directly before you come in for an assessment and put on a mask as soon as you enter KGH. 250-862-4471
