Visiting the
Family Birthing Center

For the babies’ safety, please refrain from coming to the Hospital if you’ve had the sniffles, been sick or had a fever in the past 24 hours.

We encourage the mother’s rest and request that no visitors arrive after 9 pm. Grandparents and siblings are welcome to visit anytime.

Children other than siblings can visit a postpartum mother/baby suite at the discretion of the new mother. All children need to be under the supervision of an adult who is not the patient.

No children 12 and under are allowed in the Special Care Nursery, other than a sibling who may visit for short durations when accompanied by an adult.

And we want you to know that you're more than a patient to us. You're an individual. We would appreciate the opportunity to provide you with state-of-the-art medical care and down-to-earth, personalized attention.
