Visiting Hours

On the Medical and Surgical floors, visiting hours are typically from noon to 9 p.m.

In the Birth Center, visitors for laboring patients are welcome 24 hours a day. After delivery, visiting hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

In the Intensive Care Unit, visiting may be limited based on the patient's condition. Please check in using the intercom to the nursing station from the ICU waiting room or by phone prior to visiting.

Visiting Guidelines

All inpatient visitors must check-in to receive a visitor badge. This badge must be visible at all times.

No visitors under 12 years of age (including siblings) for any inpatient location

Parents of a hospitalized child are encouraged to stay with the child.

Limit the number of visitors to 1-2 at any time, and generally keep the visit short (no more than 15-30 minutes) if not in a private room.

Due to space limitations and to keep rooms clear for potential emergencies, only one bedside chair per patient is kept in each room. If an additional visitor is present, please check in with staff to see if an additional chair is available.

When Privacy is Needed

There are times when it is not appropriate for visitors to be at the bedside. These include:

  • A physician or care team member needs to speak privately with the patient or roommate
  • A procedure is being performed
  • A roommate needs to use the bathroom, bedpan or commode
  • A roommate is being treated by a therapist or nurse

Keeping in Touch

Due to its potential to trigger allergic reactions, latex rubber balloons are not permitted in the hospital. Mylar balloons are allowed. Flowers received for inpatients will be delivered to the room with the exception of ICU or if the patient is under protective (immunosuppression) precautions.
