Visitor Information

Visit Your Loved Ones

Having visitors can be important to your emotional well-being and recovery. Getting proper rest is also important to your health and recovery. We believe the family is an extension of our patients. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about the care provided to a patient, please talk to a nurse. On occasion, visitors may be asked to leave depending on the patient's condition or due to staff needing to provide care.

Intensive Care Unit/Telemetry Visiting Hours
Visiting hours may vary depending on the acuity of the patient or the patient's needs. Please check with the ICU nurse regarding visitation.

Medical/Surgical/Swing Bed Visiting Hours
11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

At 8:30 p.m., we announce that visiting hours are over at 9:00 p.m. You will be asked to register for extended visitation past 9:00 p.m. We try to limit visitors staying the night in semi-private rooms because this infringes on the privacy of the other patient and it can be difficult to deliver care with increased residency in a semi-private room.

Swing Bed Patients
We encourage families of Swing Bed patients to visit at any time. When young children are visiting our Swing Bed patients, we ask that the children remain in the room of the patient they are visiting.

Visitors' Meals
For the convenience of visitors, our employee lunchroom is available for visitors to have breakfast from 7:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., lunch from noon to 2:00 p.m. and dinner from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Visitors who would like to eat may visit the cafeteria for a food tray which is available for a small fee. Trays are provided for parents who are staying with their hospitalized child age 12 and under. Please contact the nurse's station for this service.
