General visiting hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m., except in special areas, such as maternity, psychiatry and intensive care units. In the maternity area, fathers, siblings and grandparents may visit at any time. Visiting hours in psychiatry and the intensive care units depend on each patient's individual needs. Most intensive care units have open visiting hours all day, except for when doctors are rounding.
To ensure the comfort and safety of our patients:
- Visitors should observe the visiting hours listed and should avoid lengthy stays.
- No more than two visitors are permitted at one time.
- Only immediate family members may visit on the day of surgery.
- Staff may ask visitors to leave the room if treatment of the patient is required.
- The hospital does not permit children under 12 on patient floors or allow them to be left unattended in the hospital. An exception is made in maternity. Siblings of any age may visit when accompanied by an adult.
- If you are in a semiprivate room, please help your guests respect your roommate's need for quiet and privacy.
- Visitors are required to wear appropriate attire, which includes a shirt and shoes.
- Visitors cannot stay overnight in a semiprivate room.
For the protection of our patients, after 9 p.m. your visitors should check in with security at the information desk for a name tag. Security will also contact the nursing division to obtain after-hours clearance for visitors.
