Visiting Information

Visitors are welcome at any hour on most units, although some units may have limited hours to help patients rest. Please check with a nurse if you have questions about specific visiting hours.
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 your loved one to verify the visit and issue an ID badge to visitors. This check-in is vital to maintaining a secure hospital environment.
