Visits from family and friends are welcome and can be helpful to a patient's recovery. We ask that visitors abide by the following guidelines. It is recommended, however, that visitors check at the nursing station at specific units for information about visiting in each unit.

General Guidelines

  • Visitors with colds or experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat), or with any contagious disease should not visit hospitalized patients.
  • Only two visitors are allowed in the room at one time.
  • Visitors should maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the hospital campus, both inside and outside of buildings.

Parking is free and available in several lots all around the campus.


Our cafeteria is located on the first floor of the hospital just off the main lobby.

Weekday cafeteria hours are 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for breakfast and 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for lunch. On weekends and holidays, the cafeteria is open for breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and for lunch from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm.

There are vending machines located in various spots around the facility, including in the Cafeteria, and near the Emergency Room lobby.
