Visitor Guidelines

You can find a detailed list of visitor guidelines here.

Visiting Hours

General hospital visiting hours are unrestricted between 8 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. If you wish to stay after visiting hours, please obtain permission from the charge nurse.

The Birth Place Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are from 11 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. No visitors under 12 are allowed except for the newborn's siblings. Visitors are encouraged to wait three to four hours until the patient has recovered from delivery.

Intensive Care Unit

Please limit visitors to two at a time. If your family member has been admitted to the intensive care unit we ask that only immediate family visit and that you stop by the nurse's station before visiting. Due to the specialized nature of this unit, we ask that there be no visitors under 14 without special permission.

Children Visitation

We understand the importance of relationships with children and the role they play in the healing process. However, due to children's decreased immunities, limited attention spans, and safety issues in a hospital, staff will use discretion in allowing visitation of children under 12. Check with a nurse on the unit for further clarification.

Language Interpreter

Language interpreters are available to serve patients and their families who cannot speak, read, write or understand English at a level that permits them to interact effectively with health care providers.


The cafeteria is located in the basement of the hospital and offers hot meals 3 times a day, as well as a salad bar. Find additional information about the cafe here.
