Family, Friends & Visitors
General Visiting Hours
Visitors are welcome from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily with the exception of the ICCU, Pediatrics, and Birthing Center (see below). Children under the age of 12 are discouraged from visiting due to safety and infection control risks. In an effort to maintain a calm and restful environment, all visitors are asked to minimize noise levels throughout the hospital. To give our patients a dedicated time for rest, we observe quiet hours every afternoon between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
For the safety and well-being of our patients, no visitors will be allowed to enter the facility after 9:00 p.m. except for circumstance specific visitation. Circumstance specific visitation is limited to two individuals in the patient room and includes the following:
- Family or designee of a patient in Birthing Center
- Family or designee of a patient just admitted to any unit
- Family or designee of a pediatric patient
- Family or designee of a patient whose condition is not stable
- Family or designee of a patient during end of life issues
Restricted visiting hours end at 7:00 a.m. daily and are enforced seven days a week.
