Few things will brighten the day of a hospital patient more than receiving a visitor or two. At St. Luke’s Hospital, we understand the value of the cheer and optimism brought by visitors. Our goal is to make sure our patients get the rest and recovery time they need, and to make sure both patients and visitors stay safe at all times. That’s why we ask patients’ friends and loved ones to observe our visiting guidelines.
As a patient, you may ask to limit your visitors, and your wishes will be accommodated. Doctors may also limit visitors. Finally, in shared rooms visitors may be limited if it is in the best interest of the patients.
We realize that family and those who support the patient are an important part of the care team and that few things will brighten the day of a hospital patient more than receiving a visitor or two. At St. Luke’s Hospital, we understand the value of the cheer and optimism brought by visitors. St. Luke’s supports open visitation. However, please keep in mind that our goal is to make sure our patients get the rest and recovery time they need, while at the same time ensuring both patients and visitors stay safe at all times.
Upon admission, every patient is given a security code card. This card may be given to a family member, caregiver, friend, or whomever the patient chooses to give it to. The card contains a four-digit code, which will be asked for before any information about that patient will be provided.
The patient has the right to withdraw or deny visitation consent at any time. In collaboration with the patient and/or patient representative when a request is made, St. Luke's Hospital will assist in upholding any designated visitor restriction to the best of its ability.
Please park in the visitor parking lot, which is in the front of the hospital off of Monclova Road. If your visit began in the Emergency Center, when you return to the hospital to visit – or as family members come to visit – please use driveway 2 and park in the designated visitor parking areas. Parking spaces around the Emergency Services department are reserved for patients seeking care for this service. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
