Patients & Visitors

Visits from family and friends are an important part of recovery for our patients. Visitors are generally welcome anytime with respect to the patient's care schedule and recovery. Please ask the nurse on duty for more information regarding the best times to schedule your visits.

General Guidelines for Visitors

  • Visitors are not permitted to smoke or use tobacco products while on hospital property
  • Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes
  • Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients
  • People with colds, sore throats, or any contagious diseases should not visit patients
