Visiting Hours and Guidelines

While visitors can help patients to heal, it is important for all of us to recognize the importance that rest and recuperation play in the patient’s healing process. We work hard to make sure patients and visitors have a pleasant experience in a quiet, secure and restful environment.

We ask that visitors respect our Visiting Hours (see below). We encourage families to limit the number of visitors to a patient’s room to as few people as possible at one time. Please consider scheduling family members to visit at different times.

Visitors who have been exposed to a communicable disease such as flu should not visit a patient.

Smoking is not permitted in the hospital or on its grounds.

Rest is an important part of healing

All patients, even new mothers, need rest. Please be considerate of napping patients before visiting. We strongly suggest limiting the number of visitors to two individuals per patient.
