Visiting Hours and Guidelines

General Visiting Hours

8:30 am - 8:00 pm

Hospitalized patients need the support of family and friends. A positive visitor experience can help raise patient's spirits, a key to recovery. Following these guidelines can make these visits even more effective, safer, and more worthwhile for you and the patient.

Visitor Expectations

  • Quiet Time: 9:00 pm to 7:00 am (observed on all units)
  • Children: Children under age 12 (must be accompanied by an adult)
  • Cell Phones: Cellular equipment may interfere with hospital monitoring systems. Please use cellular phones only in designated areas of the hospital.
  • Visitation Restrictions:
    • No more than two visitors may be in a patient room at any given time.
    • Visitor guidelines are subject to change in order to meet health, safety, or other emergency needs. Any and all such changes will be clearly communicated to visitors at the Information Desk.
  • Overnight Accommodations: If there is a need for a visitor to stay overnight, please arrange for accommodations with staff.
  • Non-Smoking: Smoking and/or the use of any tobacco product, including electronic cigarettes, is not permitted anywhere in the hospital or on hospital grounds.
    • Because the nursing staff is not able to care for you if you leave the building, patients may not leave the hospital to smoke.

Fire Safety

We periodically conduct fire drills. If you hear an alarm, stay where you are. In the event of an actual emergency, hospital staff will notify you. The hospital is fire resistant, and our employees are well-trained in safety procedures.
