Visitor Information

Visiting hours are 9 am to 9 pm, seven days a week, with some exceptions.

The number of visitors in your room is limited to two per patient at any time.

Children under age 10 may visit patient rooms under special circumstances. There should be only one child in a room at a time. To spend more time with children, you may use the solarium on your nursing floor.

If someone has a cold, sore throat, infectious disease or fever, he or she should not visit any patient room, as cancer patients may be prone to catching an illness.
