Visitor information

 

Regular visits from friends and family can be an important part of getting better, so we want to be as flexible as possible with visiting hours. Our policies are meant to balance the benefits of visits with patients’ need for rest.

Hours

Regular public visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Immediate family members and caregivers may visit outside of those hours at our staff’s discretion.

The main entrances to the hospital are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Building D main entrance remains open until 9 p.m. After 9 p.m., all hospital visitors must enter through the Emergency Room entrance in Building A.

Help prevent the spread of infectious diseases

If you have been exposed to a contagious disease (or think you might have), please call or use digital communication to visit your loved one instead. All visitors are required to complete a self-screening at the hospital entrance.
