Visitor Information

Your family and friends are welcome in most areas of the hospital during daily visiting hours between 9 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. Children under the age of 12 are generally not permitted to visit patients in rooms above the first floor.

Some of our units have special visiting hours because of the critical nature of the care being done there. Our Intensive Care Units allow only immediate family members access to visit patients. These visiting hours have been set up to optimize the quality of patient care. Visits in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) or Coronary Care Unit (CCU) are limited to ten minutes at a time. Only two visitors are allowed in the ICU and CCU at a time and must be at least 12 years of age.

Visiting Hours in the ICU/CCU are:

  • 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
  • 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
  • 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
