Visiting hours are carefully designed to assure that each patient is allowed an adequate amount of rest and privacy during hospitalization. Visitors are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that respects the needs of all patients. Children under the age of twelve  will be allowed to visit for short intervals under special circumstances. Any issues involving a conflict will be addressed by the on-duty nursing supervisor who has knowledge of any clinical data needed to resolve the conflict.
Do not present to the facility if you have any signs or symptoms of infection, which includes but is not limited to: cough, congestion, fever, weeping wounds, rashes, nausea or vomiting. Hospitalized patients are more susceptible to various sources of infection and need to be protected from external sources that have the potential for complicating care.
- Medical Surgical Units: 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
