Visits from friends and relatives can make your hospital stay more enjoyable. However, it is our responsibility to ensure that our patients receive care in a quiet and restful environment. We ask that you and your visitors respect patients’ needs for rest and privacy. Because of this we request that you not have more than two visitors at a time.
