Helpful Tips for Your Visitors
Visits should be limited to two family members for any extended period of time. There are waiting areas near the visitor elevators on each floor for additional visitors.
Visitors are asked to keep their voices low at all times to help us promote a healing environment. Infants and small children are discouraged from visiting the hospital. This is for the physical and emotional well-being of the children as well as the patient.
Visitors are asked to conclude their visit by 9pm each evening to allow adequate time for patients to rest. Overnight visitors are limited to one per patient in private rooms. Semi-private rooms are assigned male/male and female/female. To ensure the privacy of all patients, overnight visitors are not allowed in semi-private rooms except in very unusual situations. In these unique situations, an overnight visitor in a semi-private room must be of the same gender as the patient.
