Families & Friends are Welcome
The presence of family and close friends can aid healing. Visitors are welcome at any hour on many units. However, some units do limit visitation to help patients get the rest they need. Please check with your nurse.
Most units prefer that you limit the number of visitors to two at any time. Please control the noise in your room. Remember that this is a tobacco-free campus; visitors wishing to smoke may check at the reception desk in the main lobby for information about offsite smoking locations.
Hospital entrances are open from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The main lobby is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Visitors must check in with a security officer at the main lobby reception desk between 8:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily. The officer will contact the nursing staff of the unit caring for you to verify the visit and issue an ID badge to your visitors. This check-in is vital to maintaining a secure hospital environment.
Family members and visitors are welcome to use the restroom inside the patient room. There are also public restrooms located throughout the hospital.
