by staff to leave, especially if a patient needs rest. Any visitor with

General Medical/Surgical Units
Labor and Delivery Unit
To provide an environment where the patient can be supported by family
members during their hospitalization yet allow medical staff to provide
the highest level of care, visitors will be allowed in LDR based upon
the patient’s condition and at the discretion of the attending physician/nurse
in consultation with the patient.
Additional visitors are welcome to wait in the family lounge area, which
is located on the LDR unit.
Acute Rehabilitation Unit
Transitions Behavioral Unit
Visitors are welcome to use the main parking lot in the front of the hospital.
There are several lounges throughout the hospital on the various units.

lounge located next to the same day surgery unit.

questions or to receive a payment Monday through Friday off the main lobby

check with the nurse prior to using your mobile device.
