Visitation Guidelines

Medical Center Hospital recognizes the importance of patients having visitors. In order to maintain a healing environment that is safe and secure we recommend the following guidelines.

Visiting hours are between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. An announcement will be made at 9:30 p.m. in English and Spanish to remind visitors that visiting hours are drawing to a close. An additional announcement will be made at 10:00 p.m. to reinforce this.

In order to provide optimal patient care, there may be occasions when it is necessary to alter these visiting hours. Physicians and/or charge nurses may limit, restrict and/or refuse visitors when it is determined to be necessary for safe patient care, to perform procedures, or to deal with emergencies.

We recommend only 2 visitors per patient at a time.

Extended visitation hours are available for parents/grandparents of infants and children in the NICU, L & D and 4E. (A detailed visitation brochure is available in these units.)
Children under 14 years and younger are limited to the first floor.

For any changes, special visitation requests, or questions please refer to the patient’s nurse.
