• Visitor Information

    In order to maintain our patients’ security, safety and comfort, we ask all visitors to:

    • Check with the patient’s nurse for special restrictions.
    • Keep noise to a minimum, to avoid disrupting other patients.
    • Limit visiting to the patient’s room.

    Visitors with infections should be restricted. Visitors to patients in isolation should use good hand washing technique and wear the proper attire supervised by the nursing staff. It is recommended that only two persons visit a patient at one time. The number of visitors may be restricted at any given time at the discretion of the charge nurse. Visitors must abide by caution signs. Some of our units have special visiting hours because of the critical nature of the care being given.

    Visiting Hours

    General Visiting Hours are unrestricted, except for medical necessity.


    We recommend immediate family only. If you require extended family visitation, please limit the number in the room. We provide waiting areas for family and friends.
