Visiting Hours

In order to provide high-quality care, it is necessary to limit visitation hours and the number of people visiting. Special consideration can be made by contacting the nurse in charge in some cases, such as the day of surgery.

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.

Each patient has the right to determine who may and may not visit, whether it be a spouse, domestic partner, family member, friend or other support person. ECMCC will not restrict, limit or delay visitation privileges on the basis of race, color, socioeconomic status, religion, sex, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, disability, or physical appearance.
