Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit. In order to maintain a safe, comfortable healing environment, the following visiting guidelines have been established:

  • ​Visitors must dress appropriately (shirts and shoes are required).
  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Be quiet to respect those patients who are resting.

If you are sick...

Friends and family members with a cold or other contagious illness are asked not to visit until they are well.​​​​

Visiting After-Hours (8 pm - 5 am)

  • Enter the hospital through the Emergency Department entrance.
  • You will be asked to sign a visitor's log at Emergency Patient Registration.
  • Wear a visitor badge in full sight while in the hospital

We know you have the best intentions. Unfortunately, sometimes outside gifts – such as food, drinks and flowers – can actually be dangerous to patients. Please check with the unit nurse before bringing any gifts.​​​​
