Please take time to review the material here and contact us if you have any questions about your upcoming stay or visit. We want to make your time here goes as smoothly as possible, whether you are a patient or visitor. 

For Patients

Please review this information about your stay at UMMC, services that we provide and your rights as a patient. 

For Visitors

We encourage you to visit friends and family who are staying at UMMC. This information will help you plan your visit.

Late-Night Patient and Visitor Access

UMMC visiting hours are 8 am – 8 pm, with the opportunity for one care partner to stay overnight if checked in by 9 pm.

The main doors of the hospital are closed from 9 pm – 5 am, and the only entrance for overnight visitors is the Emergency Room entrance which is staffed by security.

We understand there are occasions where it is best for the patient and family to have someone arrive at the hospital after 9 pm and before 5 am when the main doors open. Approval for after-hours visits must be obtained by the charge nurse who's overseeing the unit. If you are approved for after-hours visitation in an emergent situation, please report to the Emergency Room entrance, located off of Lombard Street. Security will verify approval and direct you to the unit.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

At the University of Maryland Medical System, we have made fostering equity, diversity and inclusion a guiding principle.
