Visitor Information

We Welcome Family and Friends to Visit Patients

Visiting Hours: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

unless otherwise indicated by specific department.

Visitors needing to enter the SJGH after visiting hours (8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.) must be pre-approved by the Nursing Staff on the specific unit. Pre-approval situations include patient’s imminent demise, language barrier communication assistance, personal comfort caretaker, specific patient request for their representative to be present, and labor and delivery patient’s immediate family or choice of representative. As an after hour visitor, security will issue a badge and call the unit to inform Nursing Staff of your arrival. Your badge must be worn during the entire length of your visit.

Visitor’s Cell Phone Use Policy:

  • Cellular phones may be used by patients/visitors while in the hospital. However, the use of cellular phones must comply with the maintenance of patient confidentiality and a quiet and restful environment.
  • Patients/visitors use of cellular phones will be discontinued if noise, photo taking or other disruptive use impacts patient care or a quiet healing environment, or confidentiality.

When You Visit The Hospital:

  • If you are coming to see a patient who is not listed as confidential, you will be directed to the appropriate nursing unit.
  • Please note that Hospital patients may have only two (2) visitors upstairs; all others will be advised to wait in the Lobby or Cafeteria
  • Visitors will be encouraged to take turns, two at a time, visiting a patient.

Thank You for understanding our visitation policies.

Our mutual goal is to ensure the best possible outcome for the people who are under our care.
