Visiting Hours and Guidelines

Guests may visit daily between 7 am and 9 pm; children may visit during these hours if accompanied by an adult. After 9 pm, only two guests may remain in the patient's room.

The INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU) now offers a new open visitation policy, to better accommodate the needs of our patients and families. Please limit two visitors in each room at a time. Pending the patient's assessment by the attending physician, an overnight visitor may be allowed.

For waiting family and friends,rooftop courtyards, a meditation garden, and balconies have been incorporated throughout the new hospital for a breath of fresh air. Quiet prayer rooms, family kitchens and comfortable waiting spaces are provided for on every patient level for guest comfort.

Important Visitation Guidelines

  • Observe our smoke-free campus policy. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on campus, including adjacent buildings, grounds, sidewalks, parking lots and parking towers.

  • Be sure children are well supervised by an adult at all times. Children may not play in halls or stairwells. Any child who might have a cold or fever should not come to the hospital.

  • Discourage family and friends with colds, sore throats, and other viruses or infections from visiting the patient in the hospital. Since patients are susceptible to contagious illnesses, encourage ill well- wishers to call, write, or email instead.

  • Respect all "no visitor," "isolation," or any other signs that have been ordered by the attending physician.

  • Observe our need for quiet. Have conversations quietly and in private. Place your cell phones on vibrate.

  • Visit the patient in small groups of three or less. Larger groups can be overwhelming and can intrude into other families' needs for privacy.
