Visitor Guidelines

Our family-centered environment encourages flexible visiting hours for loved ones. However, in general, visiting hours end at 9 p.m. each night.

Additional Security Guidelines for Our Campus

As we grow and the number of visitors increases on our campus, NHRMC will be taking steps to continue to improve security and create the safest environment for all of our patients, families, staff and volunteers.

New guidelines and the use of safety access badges will begin in the Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children's Hospital. All visitors, including family members, to the women's and children's patient units will be required to present a photo identification at the front desk and be issued a visitor's sticker to wear while visiting.
Staff and volunteers will be stationed at the front desk to help check in anyone who wishes to visit a patient.

Special Departments

Some departments within NHRMC Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children's Hospital also have additional visiting guidelines.
