Visitors can be good medicine for patients, family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern and it is important for patients to receive as much rest and relaxation as possible. For that reason, we ask that friends and relatives adhere to the following guidelines. No more than two visitors are allowed at the bedside at one time. Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests and/or treatments or when the physician or nurse needs to see the patient.
