To make it easier for your friends and family, most visiting hours are from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. If you have specific questions about visiting hours, please ask your nurse. We ask that only two guests visit a room at a time.

In order to promote a healing environment, the hospital has “Quiet Time” from 9 p.m. – 6 a.m. During “Quiet Time,” please help us keep noise levels down so that all patients can relax and recover.

Can my loved one stay in the room overnight?

Yes. One of your loved ones is welcome to stay overnight on the sleeper couch in your room. Extra sheets for the sleeper couch are in your closet.

Why was my loved one asked to leave the room?

There may be times when your loved ones are asked to leave the room. If this happens, your nurse will tell your loved ones why they are being asked to leave and give them a good time to come back.

Where can my visitor wait?

For the comfort of your visitors and loved ones, each floor has a Family Lounge area. These areas have flat-screen TVs, wireless internet, comfortable seating and outdoor terraces to enjoy the fresh air.
