Maternity & Childbirth

Patient & Visitor Information


Visiting Hours

During Labor
You may identify one support person who will have unlimited access throughout your labor process. Other visitors will be limited based on the safety and treatment of the laboring mother.

After Giving Birth
New dads are welcome to visit at any time. General visiting hours are from noon to 8 p.m. Siblings of the newborn may visit during general visiting hours. Siblings under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult (other than the patient) at all times and remain in the patient's room so other patients are not disturbed.

Grandparents' special visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to noon. No children under the age of 12 except siblings of the newborn are permitted.

Please note: Visitors must always wash their hands prior to handling the newborn.

Visitor Amenities

Visitors and family can wait in our beautiful, new waiting area outside of the postpartum unit in the Lakefront Tower. Just around the corner you'll find the hospital's Roma Bank Garden Café. The Café offers a wide selection of meals and goodies to satisfy any appetite. Our comfortable seating area has three-story windows overlooking the Grounds For Healing® garden. In the Café we've provided two flat-panel big screen televisions to catch up on the latest news while you are waiting.

Visitors can also stop by The Atrium Shop & Coffee Kiosk to pick up a gift for mom and baby. The Atrium Shop & Coffee Kiosk are located on the first floor of the Outpatient Services Building on the south side of the hospital. Here you can purchase flowers, cards and gifts as well as magazines, snacks and toiletries.

In-room television and telephone usage is free of charge throughout your stay. Our postpartum units are equipped with brand new, flat-panel televisions. The telephone is turned on at the patient's request and allows for incoming (local and long distance) calls. Outgoing long distance calls may be made with your personal calling card.
