Visiting Hours

Family members and friends are welcome to visit patients in the hospital. Although we no longer have specific visiting hours, patients need time to rest. There may be times when visitation is limited. Please note the following guidelines:

OB / Mother-Baby Unit

During labor, three (3) healthy adult visitors may visit. During postpartum, only one (1) healthy adult is allowed to stay after 9 p.m. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted to visit unless the child is a sibling. Siblings should not have any signs of illness (i.e. runny nose, fever). Exceptions may occur if visiting restrictions are in place. In addition, a certified doula may be available to attend the birth as part of the medical team. This is supported by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and The Association of Women’s Health and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN).

Emergency Department

If capable, the patient will determine who the contact person will be for the patient. If the patient is unable to decide on a contact person, then the patient’s Power of Attorney (POA) will be the contact person. If the patient does not have a POA, the person who signed in the patient will be the contact person. This contact person will be the person updated on the patient’s condition by staff. Other visitors will need to obtain information from the contact person.

  • Two (2) visitors/support persons may be in the room at one time. The visitors/support persons may change with approval of the ED staff.
  • Two (2) visitors/support persons will be allowed with a pediatric (minor) patient.
