Upon entering the hospital, all visitors must report to the Information Desk in the main lobby to ask for a visitor wristband. We require everyone to identify themselves and their destination within the hospital to provide a safer environment for our patients, visitors and staff. The main lobby of the medical center is open 24 hours a day.

Please note, our visiting hours are subject to change and certain restrictions may be implemented throughout the year for our patients' safety – for example, flu restrictions may apply during flu season. In addition, special arrangements can be made if needed – please ask the nurse manager on your nursing unit for assistance.
