For Patients & Visitors

With any new experience there is an element of uncertainty. If this is your first hospital visit, you probably have many concerns regarding your care, such as what to expect, who to ask questions and what is the best way to participate in your recovery.

You are the key member of your health care team, and we encourage you to become involved—ask questions, tell us your concerns, hopes and needs related to your care, treatment, services or any patient safety issues. With your assistance, we can work toward our mutual goal: giving you excellent care in a supportive environment.

COVID-19 Visitation Policy

General visiting hours: 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.

We recognize the important role visitors play in our patients’ recovery. However, we ask visitors to consider all patients' needs for adequate periods of rest and quiet. Care for the patient is our first priority and this may, at times, require suspension of visiting privileges.

Special guidelines for visiting Critical Care patients
  • Visitors are limited to immediate family members, and no more than two at a time
  • Visiting is allowed for five minutes out of an hour, 24 hours a day
  • Visiting is NOT allowed 6:30-8 a.m. and 6:30-8 p.m.
  • Children under 12 are not permitted in the Critical Care Center

Make a healthy choice and be sure a Providence Medical Center is in-network with your health plan. Not all health plans or medical groups are contracted with all Providence hospitals.
