Peace Harbor encourages friends and family to visit their loved ones in the hospital. Sometimes, seeing a familiar face in an environment the patient is not used to can be calming and help speed the recovery process. Generally visitors are welcome at any hour, however some patients require extended rest for healing and scheduled visiting hours from 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. may be applicable.

If you have questions about visiting times, please check with the patient’s nurse. In the interest of the patient's comfort and safety, the number of ICU visitors should be limited to no more than two at a time. Visitors who have colds or other infections should stay at home until they are well.

Medical Center entrances are open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Visitors should check in at the Volunteer Desk in the main lobby prior to seeing a patient. Family members and visitors are welcome to use the restroom inside the patient room. There are also public restrooms located throughout the hospital.

PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center is a tobacco-free campus.

Pet therapy

A cold nose and a warm heart may be just what the doctor ordered. Some patients heal significantly faster and better if they are visited by a friendly animal, which means our Pet Therapy Teams are an active part of the healing process. Research studies show that the uncomplicated affection and unconditional acceptance a companion animal offers can reduce anxiety and relieve depression, both of which inhibit healing. All of our Pet Therapy Teams have gone through extensive training and are members of the Delta Society. In-patients and their families that would enjoy a Pet Therapy visit are encouraged to ask their nurse.

So the next time you see one of our Pet Therapy Teams in the hospital or clinic waiting rooms, feel free to take time to for a little therapy from a cold nose and wagging tail. It’s definitely good medicine.
