Visiting Hours

visiting a patient

Welcome Around the Clock

Time with family members, loved ones and friends improves recovery and creates a healing environment essential to a patient’s health and well-being. To make our patients’ experience as positive and caring as possible, a designated family member or loved one is welcome to be present with the
patient 24 hours a day. All other guests are welcome from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

To enhance this new policy, new and renovated areas of the hospital include all-private rooms, family lounges and in-room sleep furniture for guests. The guidelines are as follows:

  • Family members are welcome at any time. Others are welcome from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Guests should not visit when they are experiencing signs of an illness.
  • No more than four family members or guests allowed at one time.
  • Accommodations are provided for one family member to stay in the patient room overnight.

If You are Sick

If you have any of the following flu-like symptoms, it is very important that you do not visit patients:

  • cough
  • sore throat
  • body aches
  • headache
  • fever or chills

Thank you for helping protect our patients.
