At Women's & Children's Hospital, we understand that a hospital stay can be a stressful time. The information found here is intended to help make your experience a little easier.

Hospital Visiting Hours

Family and friends provide an integral part in the health and well-being of patients. That's why Women's & Children's Hospital encourages the presence and participation of visitors in our patients' care. They are valued partners in our care team.

Women's & Children's Hospital has open, flexible visiting hours – visitors are welcome 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but these hours may vary by department. Please ask your nurse for specifics on your unit.

We strive to balance open visitation with our patients' needs for a quiet, restful and safe environment. For the well-being of our patients, there may be times when we need to temporarily limit visitation, and when these situations occur, we will fully inform patients and their loved ones. We will work with you to come up with a visitation plan that best meets your needs. View our Patient Visitation Rights.
