New Hanover Regional Medical Center recognizes the value of having family support and encourages loved ones to visit. Our patient-and family-centered visitation guidelines encourage loved ones to be a part of the healing process while still allowing for patient privacy and rest when needed. Although visiting at NHRMC is flexible, visiting hours end at 9 p.m. each night to allow for a restful and safe environment.

Visitor Guidelines

  •  Do not visit if you have a cold, sore throat, fever or other illness.
  • Avoid noisy, disruptive behavior to help respect the healing of all patients.
  • Ask before bringing food, drinks or other items like balloons, flowers or perfume that might trigger allergies into patient rooms.
  • Wash your hands before entering a patient’s room.
  • Make sure all children have a supervising adult with them at all times
