Visiting Information


We believe in family-centered care and we encourage loved ones to visit their family in the hospital. We are open to visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Some units may have restrictive hours due to the seriousness of a patient’s condition. Please observe these restrictions. Dominican Hospital’s main doors are locked from 8:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. During those times, all visitors must enter through the Emergency Department entrance. All visitors must check-in and receive a visitor badge. This badge must be visible at all times.
