Share Your Joy with Those You Love

Click here to read about visitor restrictions and steps we are taking to keep you and your baby safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that your loved ones are an important part of this experience, and we are excited for you to share these special moments with them. During labor and delivery, we welcome three support people to remain with you in the birthing suite. After delivery, you and baby will be monitored closely, and visitors will be restricted. Following this recovery, all visitors are welcome from 8 a.m.-8:30 p.m. 

Our Maternity Unit is a locked unit for the safety and security of our moms and babies. This means visitors will need to buzz in via intercom in order to gain access to the unit.

In order to ensure safety and security for all of our patients, we ask that you and your visitors observe the following guidelines:

  • Visiting hours are between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. We strive to be flexible at your request if your delivery occurs outside of these hours.
  • Visitors must ring the doorbell at the entrance to the Maternity Unit and provide the correct first and last name of the patient they are visiting. You have the option to request limited visitation.
  • Only three visitors are permitted in the labor room at one time. This total includes your primary support person. You may have more visitors in your room following delivery, if you choose.
  • Visitors that are not in a room must wait in designated visitor areas – visitors are NOT permitted to wait outside of a room or in the hallways.
  • Our visitor area is located at the end of the Maternity Unit hallway – near the nursery and adjacent to patient rooms 216 and 217. Out of respect for our patients, if noise volumes become too loud, visitors may be asked to wait in visitor areas outside of the Maternity Unit.
  • For the protection of our moms and babies, all visitors must be free from any signs and symptoms of illness.
  • Children must be accompanied by a supervising adult other than the patient.
  • During times of increased communicable diseases within the community, visitation may be further limited to ensure the health and safety of our moms and babies.
