At St.Vincent Women's Hospital we recognize the importance of family. That's why our Surgical Unit supports patient-directed visitation – an environment in which you will choose the visitation preferences that best suit your needs. In each room, we offer sleeping accommodations* for one adult to stay overnight with you and cell phones may be used in patient rooms. Limit one adult per patient room per night. Children are not permitted to stay overnight.
We consider your visitors as honored guests - second only to you, our patient. While we offer patient-directed visitation, based on the preference and condition of our patients, we do request that all visitors be respectful of other’s privacy and concerns for a quiet, healing environment. While in the hospital, we ask that you speak quietly and avoid unnecessary noise. Those with a cold, sore throat or other communicable illness should delay visiting until they are well. Smoking while on hospital property is prohibited. Note that St.Vincent Women's Hospital reserves the right to restrict visitors based on emergent public health concerns.
