What to Expect During Your Visit

We understand how important it is for our patients to have their loved ones with them while they receive medical care.  Visitors are welcome from 8 AM - 8 PM.

While we expect to care for COVID-19 patients for some time, we’ve taken extra steps to create a safe, secure environment for our patients, families and staff, which includes requiring a face mask (covering the nose and mouth) when visiting the hospital. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to work together to beat the pandemic. 

During your visit, please note the following restrictions that are designed to keep you and your family safe:

Face Masks

Everyone visiting must wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Any person refusing to wear a mask will not be allowed to visit.
 

Safe Visitation Practices

  • Practice social distancing, keeping 6 feet from others at all times.
  • If visiting an inpatient, stay in the patient’s room at all times except for quick trips to the bathroom.
  • Clean hands upon entry and exit to any patient care area.
     

Staying Connected with Your Loved one

Send your loved one a free eCheer card while they are in the hospital or a special care package from our gift shop.
