It’s Nice to See You.

We’re glad to have you.

Next to our patients, our patients’ friends and family members are the most important people we know. Spending time with someone who cares during a hospital stay stimulates smiles and lifts spirits–on both sides of the hospital bed. That’s why we encourage visitors to come see us, sit, and stay awhile; it’s a healthy experience for everyone.

Visiting Policies

  • Visitors are allowed during regular visiting hours (8am to 8pm)
  • It is the patient’s right to limit visitation if desired.
  • If the patient wishes to have a support person with them after 8pm, they may designate one visitor who can have 24/7 visiting privileges.
  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult and are allowed at the discretion of the nursing staff.
  • Visitors are to maintain a quiet and restful environment.
  • Visiting restrictions may apply if they pose a threat to patient safety. The Nursing Supervisor and Director and/or Administrator on call must be notified prior to restriction.
