Visiting hours for patients in the general nursing areas are not limited to specific times. We encourage family members or significant others to visit and participate in education and care as much as possible. We do ask that the number of visitors per room be limited to three at a time in order to provide the quiet and rest the patient needs to heal.

Intensive Care Unit

Visiting hours are liberal; however, may be restricted more or less for some patients depending on the patient, family and unit needs. Please feel free to discuss your personal situation with your nurse if you have any questions or concerns. There is an intercom available in the ICU waiting room to allow friends and family members to communicate with the ICU nurses at all times. Please limit visitors to two at a time.
