For UMMC Visitors

We welcome you to visit friends or family members during their stay at University of Maryland Medical Center. Please review the visiting hours and policies, as well as the convenience services we offer, before you visit.

Patients have the right to receive visitors of their choosing such as a spouse, domestic partner and other family or friends. Patients also have the right to withdraw or deny visitation privileges for any person at any time during their hospital stay.

Flu: Visitor Restrictions

The University of Maryland Medical System modified its visitor policy to prevent the spread of the flu.

Until otherwise noted, the following visitor restrictions are in place to protect the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors:

  • No one under age 18 (except if the parent of a patient) is permitted to visit inpatient units
  • Do not bring children under 18 with you for outpatient or doctor visits, unless the appointment is for the child
  • Only two adult visitors allowed per patient at a time
  • Visitors exhibiting flu symptoms - runny nose, fever, cough - are not permitted to visit hospital patients

Thanks for your understanding and help in fighting the flu.
