Due to Covid restrictions, visitation is restricted to patients on the 3rd Floor between the hours of 3pm-7pm only. Thank you.

In an effort to increase quality of care and patient and family satisfaction our hospital has an open visitation policy. We support Patient and Family Engagement practices (PFE) and believe families should play a role in the assessment and development of treatment plans for their loved ones.

Working together with those that intimately know the patient, our health care professionals can gain valuable information including the patient's medical history, conditions, medications, and allergies. This is especially important in circumstances were the patient, due to their medical condition or age, is unable to fully recall this vital information. In addition, it has been shown that open visiting hours provides a familiar support system for patients, reduces anxiety and social isolation, can assist providers in shift-change reports, and increases the opportunity for family and patient education. It is our hope that these efforts engender trust and create better working relationships between hospital staff and family members.

Please call or ask one of our receptionists to learn more about our COVID-19 policy.
