Providing Medical Quality from our Home to Yours

Visitation Hours

For the comfort and safety of our patients, visitors should not overcrowd patient rooms. As a general rule, two or three visitors should be in a patient's room at one time. We strongly encourage visitors to keep their visiting times to a minimum. Children under the age of 12 may visit with the permission of the nurse. Please note that smoking is not permitted inside the hospital or on hospital grounds. Hamilton appreciates your understanding and compliance with these matters.

Recommended visiting times in the general care areas are from 8 am to 8:30 pm.

Patients that would like to have a relative or friend stay overnight will need to check with their nurse.
