MONROE - Monroe Clinic will increase security to its maternity unit this week by requiring authorization for visitors to enter the unit. Beginning today, the Family Birth and Women's Center in Monroe Clinic Hospital will become a locked unit, said Patricia Lawson, director of marketing and business development at Monroe Clinic. The center will now require visitors to contact staff via intercom before entering the unit, with staff monitoring visitors with video surveillance.
