We understand that it is important for our patients to visit with family and friends while in the hospital. Currently, we do not have strict visiting hours, however a new policy goes into effect April 1, 2019.
Effective April 1, 2019, visiting hours will be between 8am and 8pm daily. Once the announcement is made that visiting hours are over, visitors will be asked to leave the building.
Exceptions to these established hours may occur depending on patient condition and unit. It is important to note that there may be times when the nursing staff ask you to leave the room in order to provide care.
