Visitor Hours

Visiting Hours

In order to provide high-quality care, it is necessary to limit visitation hours and the number of people visiting. In some cases, such as the day of surgery, special consideration can be made by contacting the nurse in charge.
Visitor passes must be obtained at the Information Desk in the front of the main lobby on the ground floor. Visitation in most areas of the hospital is limited to two people per patient.
