Patient Visiting Hours & Regulations

Visitors can be good medicine for patients.  Family members and friends are welcome to visit.  However, patient care is our primary concern and in order to enhance the quality of care, specific visiting hours and regulations have been set for each unit; visiting hours are available at each unit.
