Information for our visitors

To help answer your questions during your visit, we've provided some  information below.

General visiting

In order to promote a comfortable, quiet, and restful healing experience to our patients here are our recommended visiting hours are 6:00am to 8:30pm daily. Between 2:00pm and 4:00pm is quiet time where we dim room lights and quiet the environment with limited visitation to encourage and allow patients time for privacy, rest and healing.

For the safety of our patients and families, if a family member wishes to stay later than 8:30pm, a visitor’s pass can be obtained from the nursing staff. If a family member wishes to arrive to visit after 8:30pm, access to the medical center is directed through the our emergency room entrance. The visitor will be asked to sign in and be given a visitor’s pass.

Visiting the critical care unit

The Critical Care Unit (CCU) is an eight-bed unit staffed with nurses who are specially trained in the care of the patient requiring intensive care. The rooms are private and are equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment.

To provide intensive care to the patient, visiting hours are liberal, but limited. We ask that only two people visit at a time. You may be asked to leave if an emergency should arise on the unit, or if a procedure must be done. Should you be asked to leave, you will be allowed to return as soon as possible.
