We are committed to providing a positive healing environment. Families and friends are allowed to visit 24 hours a day as the patient’s desires and condition allows — the following exceptions may apply:
Critical Care/Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Step Down Unit (SDU)
To protect patient confidentiality during shift exchanges, visiting may be limited during the times of 6 to 7 am and 6 to 7 pm.
Medical/Surgical/Pediatric Unit & Women’s and Newborn Center
After 8 p.m. patients may only have one adult visitor sleep within the patient room.
Special Care Nursery
The Special Care Nursery has additional visitor guidelines, which are provided to families upon admission.
General Visitor Guidelines
- Visitors with colds, flu, sore throats, gastrointestinal upsets or other possible communicable diseases are asked to refrain from visiting the hospital.
- Visitors of patients with isolation precautions will be instructed by the nurse on appropriate use of personal protective equipment and hand hygiene prior to entering and leaving the room.
- Visiting children must be accompanied by an adult visitor. For your child’s health, prolonged exposure to a hospital environment is not recommended.
- Nursing staff may modify these guidelines depending the patient’s condition and activity on the unit.
