Visiting Hours
Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern at St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, and, in order to enhance the quality of care, specific visiting hours and/or regulations have been established for each unit.

Visiting Regulations
Following are general guidelines for visitors:

  • Visitors may not smoke anywhere in the hospital or on hospital grounds.
  • Visitors must dress appropriately and must wear shirts and shoes.
  • It is suggested to promote a calm environment, visitors be limited to two at the bedside at a time. Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
  • People with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
  • Visitors should maintain a quiet environment and avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.

Condition Reports
Any information about your medical condition and treatment will come from your physician, and shared only with family and loved ones whom you have acknowledged to receive it. A “confidentiality code” will be used for those you designate before information is released.

The chapel is located along the main corridor, beyond the Emergency Room toward the First Floor Nurses Station. Visitors of all faiths are welcome to visit the chapel for worship services, prayer and meditation. Holy Communion is distributed by request.
