Family members and other visitors are welcome anytime; visiting hours in the hospital are not limited. However, please remember our patients are in the hospital for healing and rest. In consideration of the patient and any roommates, visitors should plan their stays to be considerate of the patients' needs. To avoid spreading contagious illnesses like colds or flu, we ask that friends and family who feel ill please not visit patients in the hospital.
