Visitors are an important part of the healing process, and we encourage family and friends to visit during your stay. Visiting guidelines

ensure that patients have adequate rest and allow our staff to provide the best possible care. If you have questions about visiting hours, please ask your nurse.

Only persons having legitimate business will be allowed to enter the hospital. All patients, visitors and employees must stop at the main entrance to obtain a pass or show their identification badge. Patients and visitors may be asked to sign in.

Regular visiting hours are 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week. Visitors are limited to two at a time and other visiting restrictions may apply. Please check with the nursing staff. Children under the age of sixteen (16) may visit patients only with the authorization of the attending physician and in the company of an adult guardian/supervisor. Visitors must display a visitor pass at all times.

Passes are available at the information desks. Flowers for patients are welcome, except on intensive care units. No outside food may be brought into the hospital by or for patients/visitors without specific approval of a physician.
