Visits from family and friends are often an enormous part of the healing process. We encourage visitation. In order to ensure safety and maintain high quality care, there are specific visiting hours and regulations for specific units. Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
A maximum of four visitors are allowed per patient at one time. Children are allowed in most patient rooms. They must be healthy and accompanied by an adult. If you have question about whether a child should go into a patient's room, go to the nursing station and ask a nurse.
Progressive Care Unit and Intensive Care Unit
Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Check at the nurses' station to see how many people are allowed in a patient's room at one time. Visitors to these departments must check in with the nurses' station.
Specially designated waiting areas are available to family and friends on each floor of the hospital. Some departments have their own waiting areas. There is a private waiting room for the Obstetrics Department, Intensive Care Unit, Progressive Care Unit, Same Day Surgery, Surgery, Oncology and Radiology. There is a general second floor and third floor waiting area. If you have any questions about the specific waiting areas you should use ask at the nurses' station of that department.
