    Visiting hours are 10am to 2pm and 4pm to 8pm.
  • Parent quiet time
    Our quiet time is daily from 2pm to 4pm. Fathers are welcome to stay, but others are asked to honor this time as a few special hours for bonding as a new family, and for rest and recuperation for the new mom.

Labor & Delivery

Visitors on labor and delivery are limited to two visitors per patient. They must be designated by the mother and will be banded with an ID band that cannot be interchanged with other individuals.

Visitors under the age of 16 will not be allowed in labor and delivery. Siblings will be allowed to visit the new baby when you are transferred to post-partum.

Level II Special Care Nursery

Visitors are not permitted in the Level II Special Care Nursery from 6:30am to 7am or from 6:30pm to 7pm.

In order to protect infants from RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), seasonal visitation restrictions are put in place annually beginning on October 1. RSV is a virus that causes cold-like symptoms in most people, but can cause serious illness in young infants. From October 1 to April 1*, only parents and grandparents are allowed to visit the Level II Special Care Nursery.

*April 1 is a tentative date. Restrictions are lifted when it has been medically determined that these viruses are no longer a widespread concern.
