Visiting Hours & Policies

All visitors must check-in with the security desk at the Women & Infants Pavilion to receive a visitor pass sticker, which must be worn at all times.

Anyone who is sick or has symptoms of a respiratory infection should not visit the Women & Infants Pavilion in order to protect babies from infection. If you are feeling ill, please wait until your symptoms subside before visiting.

Video cameras are not allowed in any area of the Women & Infants Pavilion.

Post-Partum Visitation

  • The baby’s siblings are encouraged to visit the new baby, however, babies and children of other family members and friends are not permitted. Visiting children must be free of any illness (i.e. rash, runny nose, fever, etc.) and must be accompanied by an adult (other than the patient) at all times.

Visitation During Labor & Delivery

For safety reasons, children under 12 are not permitted in labor and delivery, triage or surgery rooms.

After delivery and upon the mother’s permission, the nurse will invite all of the family members over the age of 12 into the delivery room for a short visit to meet their new family member.
