Visitors are welcome, a few at a time, at hours that do not interfere with the patient’s care. Visiting hours vary in different areas of the hospital, and depend upon the approval of the patient’s physician. Please do not bring patients food as they may be on a controlled diet. For security reasons, the hospital locks its doors every evening at 9 p.m. Visitors needing to enter the hospital after 9 p.m. must come through the Emergency Department entrance.
