Patients and Visitors
  • Visiting Hours


  • In response to the needs and wishes of our patients and visitors, the Hospital's visiting policy has been created:

    • General visiting hours are 6 am to 2 pm and 4 pm to 8 pm daily.
    • To protect our patients' health, friends and relatives who are ill should not come to the hospital to visit you.
    • For security reasons, all visitors are asked to stop at the reception desk at the main entrance to obtain a wrist band and directions.
    • In respect for other patients, we ask that you limit your visitors to only two at any given time. Lobbies are available in all patient care areas for your friends and family to wait.
    • Children under the age of 14 are not permitted on the nursing units, except in Maternity and Pediatrics, and should remain in the main lobby with a supervising adult. NOTE: Siblings of the newborn are allowed in Maternity.
    • A clergyman of your religious preference may visit you at any time during your stay, day or night.
    • The visiting hours in specified nursing units are outlined below. Special circumstances may indicate the need to make an exception to our visiting policy.

    CARDIAC & INTENSIVE CARE UNITS

    Immediate family members and significant others are able to visit anytime during the day or night; however, visitation is not available during staff changes, from 6:30 to 8:30 am or 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Two visitors are allowed in a patient's room at any time.

    LABOR / DELIVERY / RECOVERY

    At vaginal delivery, the father and one other person designated by the mother may be present. Children under the age of 14 years may be present at the discretion of the physician and must be accompanied by an adult other than the support person. If other family members are present, they may visit new parents after delivery.

    MATERNITY

    Visitors are welcome during regular hospital visiting hours from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Siblings of the newborn may visit as long as they are illness-free. Visitors are not allowed during "quiet time," between 2 pm and 4 pm, when parents, and baby enjoy quiet time together.

    SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

    Special circumstances may indicate the need to make an exception to our visiting policy. A request can be made to the patient's nurse.
