Patient Bedside

Parents or guardians are encouraged to visit 24 hours a day. A bedside recliner or sleeper sofa is available for overnight stays in patient rooms. The patient or patient’s legal guardian may select two adults who may stay overnight on acute care units. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit have special overnight visitor guidelines. Consult your child’s nurse for details.

During extended stays, patient families may use one of six recreational vehicle (RV) parking spaces located east of the Hospital. Spaces are provided on a first come, first serve basis and reservations are not accepted. Families seeking to use a RV parking space must register with the Hospital’s Safety and Security Department prior to use. Length of stay is limited.
