Visiting Hours and Guidelines

Visiting privileges depend on the patient's condition. The patient, nurse, or physician may restrict visiting hours. Your cooperation in maintaining a peaceful, quiet atmosphere throughout the hospital is appreciated.

The main entrance is open from 5:30 am to 8:30 pm. The emergency entrance is accessible 24 hours every day. We encourage visitors for emotional support and recovery. To provide a restful and safe environment, we ask family and visitors to help us with the following:

  • Be considerate of other patients by keeping noise to a minimum.
  • Ensure that children who visit are supervised by an adult other than the patient.
  • Refrain from visiting if you have a cold, sore throat, or any contagious disease.
  • Respect no visiting signs. These are only placed when patients request no visitors.
  • Observe our infection prevention signs and see the nurse before entering a room if the sign requests that.
  • Leave the room during tests and treatments if asked.
  • Visiting may need to be limited depending on the patient's condition to promote rest and healing.
