Visiting Hours

SWMC recognizes the need family members and visitors can meet in the patient’s hospitalization experience. With providing quality care as our first priority, we have established visiting hours that recognize the patient’s needs.

If you have a cold or flu or are not feeling well, please do not visit for the protection of the patient and other visitors. Children under age 12 may visit a relative when accompanied by an adult. To make it the most enjoyable visit possible for the patients, we suggest no more than 2 visitors in the room at a time. We encourage patients to rest and we ask that you limit the length of your visit. Please be sure to remember to visit, call or email the patient once he or she has returned home.

General visiting hours are scheduled from 8 am – 8:30 pm daily. Your compliance with these hours would be greatly appreciated. Visitors may be asked to leave the room while staff are providing care.
