• Visiting Hours

  • We encourage families and other partners in your care to be involved and supportive while you are hospitalized. Our care team recognizes that families and other visitors can be an important part of your safety, comfort, physical and psychological well-being, and their presence can aid in your healing process.

    • Visitors are welcome 24 hours a day, according to your preference as a patient.
    • While we encourage visitors in most circumstances, visiting privileges may vary depending on your condition and need for rest.
    • To protect our patients' health, friends and relatives who are ill should not come to the hospital to visit you.
    • For security reasons, all visitors are asked to stop at the main entrance reception desk to obtain a wristband and directions.
    • The number of visitors allowed in the room will be determined in collaboration with the patient and his/her family members. In situations where there are shared rooms, the preferences of the other patient or family will be included in the decision-making. Lobbies are available in all patient care areas for your friends and family to wait.
    • Children supervised by an adult are welcomed. There are no age restrictions, however children should not accompany an adult who is staying with you overnight.

    The visiting hours in specified nursing units are outlined below.
