Visiting Hours

Pediatrics
Children need consistency and assurance. Because parents and other family members are a primary source of comfort, they are always welcome. There may be a few instances when you'll be asked to leave your child's room, but that will only be occasionally. Although our team is very experienced in working with children and making them comfortable and happy, there is no substitute for family.

Pediatrics and the pediatric intensive care unit have open visitation 24 hours a day. However, nonparental visitations between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. are discouraged to allow children to rest. Siblings may visit, provided they are supervised at all times. Persons who are currently sick or have recently been exposed to communicable diseases, such as chickenpox or shingles, should not visit.

The Birthplace
Visitors to The Birthplace may notice special signs on the doors to new parents' rooms. While they are cute and decorative, the signs should be taken seriously. New moms need rest, and new parents need time to bond with their infant. Friends and family should always ask the nurses whether or not now is a good time to visit before entering a room. If Mom needs privacy, nurses will direct guests to a comfortable waiting area.
