University Hospital and the Freestanding Emergency Department both operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
General Visiting Hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
To ensure the safety of our patients and employees, visitors are required to provide a photo ID to enter University Hospital. Additional requirements are outlined in the full University Hospital Visitation Policy [PDF].
Visiting Hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
If a visitor is in the room by 8 p.m., overnight stays are permitted unless there are extenuating circumstances. Emergencies, including hurricanes, may require changes to the visitation schedule.
Intensive Care Units
Visiting Hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Intensive and critical care units observe limited visiting periods because of the level of care needed. Occasionally, an emergency or procedure in the unit may delay the start of visitation. Should this occur, every effort will be made to allow visitation as soon as possible. Personal items should be kept to a minimum to decrease the risk of infection. Live plants or flowers are not permitted. All visitors must wash their hands both before and after visits and observe any other precautions, such as wearing a gown, gloves or mask if required.
Post Anesthesia Care Unit
During pre-operative registration (preparation for surgery), two visitors are allowed to assist the patient. Once the patient has been registered, visitors will not be able to remain in the hospital. No visitors are allowed in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (Recovery Unit). Designated visitors can enter the hospital during visiting hours when the patient has left recovery and been moved to a room.
Please note: Visiting hours are subject to change if approved by USA Health’s management team.
