Visiting hours

General visiting hours at The Mother Baby Center are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

To help create a safe and welcoming environment, children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult in all areas. Please remember: Visiting children are the responsibility of the adult member/caretaker of the family. Visiting hours and guidelines do change. Ask concierge staff for current visiting hours and guidelines.

Health guidelines

All visitors must follow these guidelines for the health and safety of all patients.

  • Anyone who has not had chickenpox and has had a known exposure in the past three weeks is not permitted to visit patients. If you have received the chickenpox vaccine in the last three weeks, see the nurse or call the nursing station before visiting.
  • Anyone who has symptoms of a contagious illness, such as a cough, cold, vomiting, diarrhea, cold sore or rash, should not visit patients.
  • Parents who have a contagious illness should talk with their nurse or doctor.
  • All visitors are asked to follow hand-hygiene procedures by washing hands or using the antibacterial foam provided throughout the hospital.

If you have questions, please talk with your nurse or stop by the nurses’ station before visiting.


The Mother Baby Center staff members are trained to respect the confidentiality of all patients by not discussing medical and family issues with other patients and families. We ask that you also respect the privacy of other patients and their families by not discussing their medical care with others.


Only Mylar balloons are allowed at The Mother Baby Center. Latex balloons are not allowed because of the potential choking danger if balloons are chewed or swallowed by young children. Some individuals also have latex allergies. We thank you for your help with this safety issue.
