Family Presence (Visiting Hours)

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visitor restrictions are in place. Please click here for more information about current visitation restrictions.

Family presence is welcome 24 hours a day based on patient preference. Nobody knows a patient better than their loved ones. Patients and their families should have the freedom to decide when they want to visit together based on their needs and schedules.

Family presence may be restricted to protect the privacy and rights of patients. We may interrupt family presence to provide patient care. If asked to leave the room, please comply.

Family/guests coming to GBGH after-hours (between 10:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.) will use the Emergency Department entrance.

Quiet times have been designated for the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. every day to promote a restful, healing environment for our patients.

The number of visitors permitted at the bedside will be decided in collaboration with the patient, family and care team.

Reminder: Please do not visit if you or your family members have colds, flu-like symptoms or a known communicable disease.

Allergy Alert: No Latex Balloons; No Lilies: GBGH is a Fragrance Friendly hospital – we discourage the use of perfume and colognes due to allergies.
