We believe visitors play an important part in a patient’s well being. Visitors create healing. You may visit at any time, however, please note the guidelines below. Rest is needed for comfort and well being. Be aware of the patient’s need for rest when you visit.

Some units such as Women’s Care Center, the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care Unit and Psychiatric Care Unit have specific visiting guidelines. Please speak with the patient’s nurse about visiting these units. We will help you meet your needs.

Visiting is not permitted in the Operating Room and Recovery Room (PACU).

Intensive Care Unit Visiting Hours - The visiting hours are 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Visitors are restricted to immediate family members. Only two visitors are allowed at a time. Short visit lengths are suggested, and length is generally dependent upon the condition of the patient and his/her ability to tolerate visitors.

To help with rest and comfort we suggest no more than two visitors at a time. Larger families may wait in our waiting areas. We have free parking for visitors. Handicapped parking is located at the Main Entrance and near the Emergency Entrance.

Please respect and protect the privacy of all patients.

Please cooperate with all requests from hospital staff. There may be times when visitors are asked to leave a patient’s room or change locations while the patient’s needs are being met.
