Visiting Hours


Family Presence and Visitation

It is our goal to provide compassionate, extraordinary care every day. We view patients and families as important members of the health care team, and therefore welcome and support your presence, for you play a vital role in supporting the physical, social and emotional health of your loved one.

Please keep in mind that providing safe care in a quiet and healing environment must come first. Therefore, at times, we may need to limit the number of people at your loved one’s bedside.

For a family member who wishes to stay overnight, please discuss this with your loved one and their nurse. 

To help create a safe and healing environment for all, please make note of the following:

  • family and friends are welcome during the hours of 9 am to 9 pm
  • family lounges are available for family and friends to gather
  • in general, children under age 16 are welcome in patient care areas; however, they must be accompanied by an adult other than the patient at all times
  • family and friends who are sick should not spend time at the patient’s bedside or in other patient care areas
  • to achieve treatment goals, some units, such as mental health, rehab, women’s and children’s, may have additional guidelines surrounding the presence of family and friends. Please check with your loved one’s nurse for further information.

To help ensure the safety of our patients and staff, some entrances may be locked during late evening and overnight hours. See the chart below for additional instructions »
