Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit patients in the hospital. Although we no longer have specific visiting hours, patients need time to rest. There may be times when visitation is limited. Please note the following guidelines:
One visitor/support person may accompany the patient to an appointment or office visit. For pediatric (minor) patients, two visitors/support persons may accompany the patient to an appointment or office visit.
Three designated visitors/support persons may visit. Each person must wear a visitor armband. In addition, a certified doula will be available to attend the birth as part of the medical team. This is supported by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses.
The patient, if capable, will determine who will be the contact person for the patient. If the patient is unable to decide on a contact person, then the person holding power of attorney for the patient will be the contact person. If the patient does not have a power of attorney document, the person who signed in the patient will be the contact person. This contact person will updated on the patient’s condition by staff. Other visitors will need to obtain information from the contact person.
The guidelines below may be superseded by the current COVID-19 guidelines above. Please check with each department listed below to confirm visiting hours and restrictions.
Parents and guardians may stay with a child at all times on the pediatric unit. Friends and other family may visit during regular hours.

For outpatient services on the ambulatory services unit (ASU), on the second floor (in surgical services), up to two visitors may stay with the patient.

Special arrangements can be made if needed. Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments. Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the hospital or on hospital property. Visitors are asked to dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes. We ask that no more than two visitors be in a patient’s room at one time unless cleared with the nurse or care providers.
