Visiting hours

There are no formal visiting hours at Providence St. Joseph’s Hospital, as the best times to visit may vary from patient to patient. We recommend checking with a nurse to determine the most appropriate time to visit your loved one. We also suggest checking at the nurses’ station to verify patient room numbers. They do sometimes change.

In order to protect other patients’ privacy, we ask that you do not remain in the hallway when waiting to see a patient.
