Hospital visiting hours are not specifically designated in most areas. Due to patient care needs and physician rounds, it is often better to visit between 11:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Children may visit when accompanied by an adult and are not disruptive to other patients. After 9 p.m. visitors will have to enter through the ED and doors are locked in other locations until 6 a.m.
Visiting hours in the Intensive Care Unit are every day from:
9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
9:00 p.m. - 10 p.m.
As a comfort to your family and friends, waiting areas are available on each nursing floor. These areas are open 24 hours a day. We ask that you do not sleep or bring food into these areas.
