Visitor Information

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.

Generally, our visiting policy is as follows:

  • Visiting hours are from 11 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
  • Two visitors at a time
  • Spouse may visit anytime
  • Clergy may visit anytime
  • On the day of surgery, immediate family members may visit patients anytime
  • Parents of a pediatric patient may stay with their child
  • Children younger than 12 who are members of the immediate family may visit during normal visiting hours
  • Children who visit must be accompanied by an adult

Please also know that we waive visiting restrictions on New Year’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you have any questions or would like to make special visiting arrangements, please discuss it with your loved one’s nursing staff.
