Your loved ones are important to us
We recognize the important role family and loved ones play in the healing process, and we encourage visitors to come when it is best for their loved one. You and your loved ones are important to us.
For an atmosphere of rest and healing, general hours of visitation are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. but can vary depending on the patient's condition and specialty area. Visitors are guests of the patient and should use good judgment when determining the length of their visits.
After general visiting hours, security will screen all visitors by contacting the nursing unit. Only two visitors will be allowed in the room at one time to ensure patient safety. Other visitors are welcome to remain in the lobby until they are able to visit.
We understand that you want to be able to visit your loved ones when it’s convenient for you. Therefore, the hospital is open to visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week; however, there are a few exceptions in certain areas. They are:
