Visiting Hours

Visiting hours are limited to 8 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 5 p.m.

Visitation is restricted to one healthy adult (18 years old or older) visitors per patient, per day. For pediatric patients, two healthy parents/legal guardians per patient, per day are permitted.

Masks are required by all visitors.

All visitors will be screened to protect everyone’s health and safety. Patients who have been diagnosed with, or are suspected to have, COVID-19 will be unable to receive visitors.

If a person is coming into Mercy for outpatient surgery, lab work, xrays, ECG's etc:
  • Only 1 adult (age18 or older) can accompany the patient. No others will be allowed.
  • Both the patient and the adult accompanying them will be screened -- either at the parking ramp or at the main entrance. There are no exceptions to the screening

Please note: Latex balloons cannot be brought into the hospital because they present an allergy risk to some people. Mylar balloons are acceptable.
