Visitor Policy

The Women's Center provides a family-centered friendly approach to care. We recognize how important it is to you to share your excitement and your newborn to family and friends. Our staff is committed to helping you build memories and protecting the health and safety of all of our babies.

During labor, two support people may be present at a time and other visitors may wait in the Family Waiting Room.

At Delivery, if desired, a second support person can be present. As always, nursing will support mother’s request for no visitors if she desires.

During a Cesarean Delivery and immediate recovery room, one support person will be welcomed to be with mom.

On the Mother-Baby Unit, grandparents, siblings and other family and friends are welcome. We encourage you to limit your visitors until you are home to allow for your rest, healing and time to get to know your baby.

We recommend a maximum of 4 visitors at a time.

Visiting hours are encouraged between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Rest and Rejuvenation Time

We provide a Rest and Rejuvenation time every day from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Our nursing staff is committed to providing you the rest and recovery you need in the hospital, which helps provide a healing and restful experience. Every day from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., we provide you and your newborn and support person quiet time to rest. Unless there is a medical need or a special visitor request from mom, visitors will be asked to wait in the family waiting room during this precious family rest time.
