Visiting a Patient at Memorial Healthcare System

Healthcare Visitation Guidelines

Memorial Healthcare System encourages family members and loved ones to visit its hospital patients. To make the most of your visit, please read the guidelines below:

Visiting Hours

Visiting hours for most hospital units are flexible to meet the needs of family and friends, 24 hours a day. Other hospital health care units have special visiting hours and policies, so please call ahead before stopping by.

In addition to these hospital policies, please note the following general guidelines:

  • Children must be supervised by an accompanying adult at all times.
  • If a patient wishes for a family member to stay overnight, please contact the patient's nurse to make arrangements.
  • We ask that any person with a cold, sore throat or other transmittable illness not visit patients.

Visiting Suggestions

We ask that visitors be sensitive to patients' conditions and their need for rest. Please contact the patient or the patient's family before visiting.


Parking is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Pediatric patients undergoing surgery at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital can have family members stay free of charge at the nearby Conine Clubhouse. Rooms are available on a space-available basis
