We know having family and friends visit is important to you. For your rest and recovery we encourage no more than two visitors at a time. Visitors are not restricted to immediate family in any patient care area. The plan for each patient’s visitation is a cooperative effort between the patient, his or her visitors, and the hospital staff.

Any visitor to the hospital after 9:00 p.m. and before 5:00 a.m. must enter through the main entrance and check with the emergency department staff. The emergency department staff will notify security who will accompany the visitors to the appropriate department.
