Visiting Hours

Visits from family and friends are very welcome and often support patients in their recovery. We encourage visitors but ask that no more than 2 per patient visit at one time. We also ask that you remember the following:

  • Please be sensitive to the needs and wishes of room-mates. Lounges are available on most floors for family and friends to visit if the patient's room-mate is sleeping or having a procedure done.
  • Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and remain in the patient's room during the visit.
  • Visitors who are not feeling well should not visit the Hospital. You may risk exposing patients to infection from a cough or sneeze.
