Most non-COVID patients in the hospital will be allowed one visitor for two consecutive hours per day. Visitors may choose between one of two open visiting opportunities: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., or 4 – 6 p.m. In our emergency departments, patients will be allowed one visitor for the first and last 30 minutes of treatment to assist with admission details and discharge planning.

Voice of the patient
Thanks to all of you, my recovery over the past year from the successful removal of a meningioma has been good and steadily progressive. The care, both before and after the surgery, was instrumental in my improvement. All of you, in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology, with your personable but professional attention, high but attainable expectations, kindness and patience, are the reason for my notable progress. Without your knowledge and expertise, it is doubtful my recovery would be so successful. You will forever have my deepest gratitude.
