Visiting at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center

Please check the COVID-19 page for the latest visitor information.


Parking is free. As with parking areas anywhere, please lock your vehicle and do not leave valuables in your car.

Visiting Hours

Main Campus – 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Some units have different hours or certain restrictions posted.

If a patient cannot have visitors or requests no visitors, family members should share this with friends and relatives. Some patients choose not to tell family and friends about a scheduled hospital stay until after they are home and feel well enough to have visitors. We strongly recommend that visitors not come if they are ill themselves.

PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center is a tobacco-free campus. Tobacco use (cigarettes, cigars, pipes, snuff, chew, etc.) is not permitted anywhere on the property — indoors or outdoors.

Patient Condition & Surgery Reports

It is our goal to keep families and visitors informed in a timely manner about the status of a patient’s treatment.  PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center offers an electronic surgery tracking system which allows family members to monitor the progress of a patient through surgery.


The Chapel adjacent to the main lobby is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Chapel is non-denominational and all are welcome.
