Visiting a Patient

Everyone at Christian Hospital is dedicated to providing a restful, healing environment for our patients and their families. When visiting, please do your part by respecting our visitors’ guidelines.

For more detailed information, read our Patient Family Guide to Services

General Hospital/Surgical/Telemetry Divisions

Visiting Hours: 11 a.m.-8 p.m. 

There may be no more than two visitors at any time. To ensure our patients have quiet time to rest and heal, only children 12 and older are allowed to visit. Of course, if a child’s visit is important to a patient, they certainly are welcome. We insist that all visiting children are accompanied and constantly supervised by an adult. Children must have adult supervision in any area of the hospital at all times. The patient is never to provide this supervision.

Acute Medical Care Unit (AMCU)
Visiting Hours: 8 a.m.-7 p.m. and 8 p.m.-9 p.m.

Please understand that these patients are in the critical phase of their recovery. Therefore, we must limit the number of visitors to no more than two visitors at any time. Adults only.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
Visiting Hours: 8 a.m.-7 p.m. and 8 p.m.-9 p.m. 

Please understand that our ICU patients are very sick and require a great deal of rest. Therefore, we kindly request that you limit the number of visitors to two at the bedside, and if possible, consider visiting one at a time. Adults only.

Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation Unit (CMRU) 
Visiting Hours:

  • Monday-Friday -- 5:30-8 p.m. 
  • Saturday and Sunday -- Noon-8 p.m. 

After-Hours Entry

To ensure the safety of our patients, facility doors are locked at 8 p.m. each night. After 8 p.m., all visitors must enter the hospital through the Emergency Department. Visitors after hours are required to provide a valid photo identification card and be screened.

Help Us Help Our Patients Heal
We understand that many people desire to stay overnight with their loved one in the hospital. A visitor may remain in a patient care area after hours only if this has been authorized by the manager, or unit or house supervisor and will be issued a visitor pass. When a patient has a roommate, however, the needs and privacy of both patients must be considered. Please discuss this in advance with the nurse in charge.

For the well-being of our patients and the safety of our staff, visitors who are inappropriate, uncooperative or disrespectful will be asked to leave. If children are not supervised, for their safety and the safety and healing of our patients, they and the adult who brought them to the hospital will be asked to leave.
