Visitor Information

Visiting Hours
Visits from loved ones are important to your healing and emotional health. Rest, privacy and safety are also vital to your health and well-being. To respect the rest, privacy and safety of you and your roommate, we limit visitors to two per patient at a time. Your caregivers may ask visitors to step out of the room momentarily to insure the privacy of you or your roommate. They may also ask visitors to leave for extended times to insure proper rest for you and your roommate. An adult must accompany children visiting.

Intensive Care, Maternity/Obstetrics, Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatrics each have restricted visiting hours. Please ask about specific visiting hours in those areas.

Overnight visitors must register and wear a name badge to insure the security of our patients and staff. Please talk to the nurse about registering with security.

Shhh, Patients are Trying to Rest
Peaceful rest is one of the most important parts of healing. Please help us help you and all patients by:

* Limiting visitors to two per patient at one time.
* Maintaining low voices in all areas of the hospital.
* Making incoming and outgoing phone calls between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.

For the health of our patients, visitors, employees and physicians, Union Hospital and all Union Hospital facilities and properties are smoke free - inside and out. No smoking is permitted anywhere on our campuses. Physicians may order nicotine replacement therapy (patches, gum, etc.) for patients who smoke and feel they need help while staying with us. Speak with your doctor or nurse if you'd like this option. Thank you for caring for the health of everyone in our facilities.
