Patients and Visitors
At Christian Hospital, we believe visits from family and friends are important in the healing process. We are dedicated to providing our patients and their families with a restful, healing environment. When visiting Christian Hospital, please follow the below visiting hours and guidelines.
No more than two (2) visitors will be permitted in a patient’s room at a time (families may switch out during the day). Exceptions may be allowed based on the medical and personal needs of the patient, whether the room is shared with another patient, and if additional visitors may adversely affect the well-being and privacy interests of the patient’s roommate or other patients.
Christian Hospital visiting hours have now been adjusted and will now reflect 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; our policy references that visitors staying after 8p are allowed but must be badged in at the ED entry point.
ICU ONLY will have open visiting hours, 12 & under must be accompanied by a responsible adult and are permitted in the ICU Waiting Room only. Two (2) visitors per patient in the patient's room, and family may rotate two (2) at a time. Exceptions may be allowed based on the medical and personal needs of the patient.
The patient may have two (2) people accompanying them for their doctor's appointment. Visitors 12 & under must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
