Visitors can be good medicine for patients. Family members and friends are welcome to visit. However, patient care is our primary concern at Southwestern Medical Center, and, in order to enhance the quality of care, specific visiting hours and regulations have been established for each unit. The General Visiting Hours are 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Due to patient privacy requirements, any information about the patient’s diagnosis or treatment must come directly from the patient to concerned family members or friends. No information will be given out by the switchboard operator or nursing personnel.
There are specially-designated lounge areas for visitors on each patient floor and on the main floor in the lobby. Specific waiting areas have been designated for families of patients in the Intensive Care Unit, the OB Department, Short Stay and Surgery.
