Visiting Hours

For the safety of both the visitors and patients, visitors must remain in the patient's room, designated unit waiting areas or the cafeteria; visitors are not allowed to roam the halls of the hospital. Below you will find each facility's visitation hours. We respectfully ask that you follow all policies and instruction provided at each facility. 

A telephone is provided in each room; there is no charge for local calls within a 30-mile radius. To dial out: dial 9, then the number. Long distance calls may be charged to your home, a credit card, or collect; they may not be charged to your room.

Additional LGMC Visiting Hours

    • Intensive Care Unit:  Visiting hours are 9 a.m. - 10 a.m., 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., 5 p.m.- 6 p.m., and 9 p.m. - 10 p.m. Visitation is limited to two visitors at a time. Patients in the ICU need to rest and heal, so please limit the time you are in the patient’s room. Children under the age of 14 should not be allowed to enter the ICU because their body’s immune system is not strong enough to protect them against germs they could be exposed to in the ICU.
    • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: Parents and grandparents may visit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit any time except between 6-8 a.m., 10-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m.  No visitors under 18 are allowed in the NICU. No visitor is allowed to stay overnight in the NICU.
    • Emergency Room: Only two visitors per patient are allowed beyond the Family Waiting Room (unless the condition of the patient prevents visitation).  Required visitor wristbands may not be shared.  Please consider this when selecting two visitors.  
Why?  LGMC treats over 85,000 patients per year in the Emergency Room.  As a result, there are over 130,000 visitors per year.  Our ER staff can provide more attentive care by limiting the number of visitors coming and going.  Limiting the number of visitors improves the safety, privacy and noise level affecting our patients.  Restricted visitation helps create a more restful environment for patients and limits distractions.  Best practice across the country shows that this is done to ensure your loved one receives the best care possible and is given the best chance for a full recovery.
